I usually get a plastic container and fill it up with highly concentrated salt water. Just dunk the battery in there and make sure the whole thing is under water (connectors and everything). You should see very very tiny bubbles come up from the battery, and this lets you know it's slowly, and safely discharging. Just leave it outside for a day or so, then throw in the garbage
Thats what I did for lipo packs in my RC helicopters. I'm not sure if there is a better way or not now days.
