Warm soapy water.
Disconnect battery first.

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 don't know the name of it off hand..but it puts some kind of coating over the terminal to stop the corrosion from happening again..

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