There is a spray you can buy at the auto parts store

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

dielectric grease, I use it on batteries of my car and bikes. Small tube lasts a long time.

I have used both plain axle/bearing grease and dialectic grease and both will work. I prefer dialectic grease since I use it on light bulbs when I install them in all my vehicles.

Believe it or not...once you have the corrosion cleaned off...spray it with an aerosol hairspray. It works.

WD-40 seems to work well too.
