Yep, do that..then wipe everything off, clean off where the terminal contact the post, then go up to the auto parts store and pick up some of this stuff they have in a spray can, you spray it on the terminals to stop the corrosion from happening..

i think another trick is to put on some vasoline after you clean it, that prevents all that nasty grit.
