I have to correct you right back: Simply neutralizing the wet acid won't make it safe. The baking soda doesn't remove the cadmium or strontium nor the arsine or stabine that was formed by arsenic and antimony in the alloy reacting with the acid previously. The cost of acid getting onto and destroying clothing is pretty minor compared to the medical and/or funeral costs associated with tissue damage caused by vapors of those other compounds or their oxides or their sulfates.
