on my battery terminal (hot).

I've cleaned it several times after applying vinigar to remove the build up, but this doesn't seem to last long. I also clean the terminal with a professional brush thing that fits over the post and you rotate it by hand.

I doubt any of the american products I've seen online would be locally available.

Thanks.

why spend the money when a few dabs of vaseline will do the trick. i've been doing that for over 50 years and learned that from mechanics who are long dead now. get a clue.

In 2001, I bought a small can, maybe a pound, of red axle grease. I used it for battery terminals and for lubricating automatic garage door tracks, etc., until 2014, when we moved. The new owner still has 3/4 of a can left.
