battery leakage on HP ENVY dv6 notebook

I appear to be having my battery leak from my HP ENVY dv6 notebook, causing small holes in my shirts.  I use the notebook resting on my lap and against my stomach.  I have approximately 6 shirts that now have holes in them.  Has anyone heard or experienced this problem?

Seems like a battery leak would cause holes in pants-isn't the battery at the back edge of laptop? On all of mine it is anyway.

Thanks for your comment.  I have the notebook resting just above my belt, with the edge of the battery compartment against my stomach.  If I didn't have multiple shirts with holes in the same place, I would not think the battery may be the problem.

Just on the off chance, when you removed the battery and fully inspected it and the inside of the computer compartment did you find anything??

Bo noticeable damage, in fact I replaced the battery.  However the problem appears to be resulting from the leading edge of the laptop, rather than the back / battery compartment.

The battery did not show any indications of leaking or swelling.  However,; since then examining the PC carefully, it appears as if the damage to my clothing is occurring at the left front edge just behind the touch pad.  Had a tech look at it, no joy.

 I now use a heavy duty place mat and a cooling mat under my  laptop.  Not a solution but I am not damaging any more shirts.

Would appreciate any additional information.  Thanks
