dielectric grease

anyone knows where I can buy some dielectric grease? This is the stuffs that you put on electrical terminals to prevent corosion..my battery terminal is getting a hit big time. I scanned my favorite/cheap store (Wally World) but it's a no go...so do Home Depot, Lowes...
I think AutoZone and Adv Autoparts has some but only in tiny little packet. Is it available in a bigger tube? Thanks.

if you need to get some corrosion off of the battery terminal 1st. buy a cocacola and pour it on the terminal. eats the corrosion right off.

plain water works better than cola. and isnt sticky mess. water will neutralize the acid if present too.

You should be able to get it at Lowes or HD, maybe Autozone, definitely at a place that sells boat service items.

Go to an auto parts store and buy the spray coating for battery terminals.

Mix water and baking soda to neutralize the acid and corrosion. O'Reillys sells a silicone contact spray that keeps the connection clean and it is not as messy as dielectric grease.

By the way, the corrosion comes from acid leaking past your lead battery terminals. Those little round red and green pads they sell for a dollar will help keep it from happening again.

So it's basically a NON-conducting grease...main purpose is to keep water out (seal) to prevent corosion or what nots...
Can I just use the regular grease (lithium grease or whatever) that's like $3 per giant jar (kind of light brownish color)? Will it do the same thing?

Use really hot water, found that to be the best of all the recommendations to remove the corrosion. Just pour it on slowly, There is no clean up.
