Any way to fix the battery contacts?

Block Image

So I go to use my magic mouse and i found it was not turning on

So I did what anyone would do, replace the batteries

NOT! the battery leaked and corroded the contact for the negative

Not only that, the battery acid leaked and it got inside the mouse because the corroded battery contact got stuck when I removed the battery from the battery socket, but with a little bit of convincing, it came loose this time, but still tends to stick

i got REALLY LUCKY with the other contact, not even close to major corrosion damage!

I really don't want a 80$ mouse to go to waste, and I will NOT buy a new one with how much this one cost

Any fix?

Your best bet is to get a new mouse or try and clean the contacts off.
