I had an AA battery leak inside my EOTech. Any suggestions on how to clean up the contacts? One of them is fairly green.

I would start out with a wood toothpick or sharpened skewer stick to get the heavy stuff off.
Wash with rubbing alcohol & Q-Tips.
Then use a white ink eraser for final clean-up / polish.

After that, coat the contacts with dielectric grease and a small model paint brush.

I had a similar problem with my eotech. Call for a replacement kit. They're super easy to fix and they sent mine at no charge.

At one time an electronics store recommended putting CLUB SODA on a swab. Tried it once, got some gunk off .

I used the baking soda method when a 9v battery did that in my shot timer.
