I picked up a can of battery terminal corrosion cleaner (or some such shit) at Wally World for a few bucks a while back.

the best way is a combination of baking soda and water. It will eat that shit right off of the terminal.

also when its clean if you put a penny between the terminlas the corrision will build up on that instead and you can just keep changing penny

They sell this red spray shit for like 97cents to coat your terminals. Works well.

Those charged with marijuana possession are Worthing High School teacher Sean Thomas, Wheatley High School administrator Gina Thomas and Whittier Elementary School teacher Susan Michael.

So it looks like they're targeting the teachers at schools that begin with "W."

yeah baking soda works best, coat your terminals with some di-electic or di-electric grease cant think of how its spelled but the stuff works good, you can get it in a spray can at any autoparts store

Re: Best and easy way to clean corrosion off battery terminals?

i wish i knew that a long time ago with the baking powder, my battery was corroding away on the pos terminal, i would have done the baking soda and then the penny trick. but my battery died so i got a yellow top optima, now i guess id ont have to worry about it.....
i stood there with a drill and a wire brush bit, practically ginded it away........i dont suggest this because it turns the blue battery powder into dust, into the air, while i sit there breathing it in......ill prolly get cancer later on
