As an experiment, I thoroughly coated the positive terminal cable connection with hot glue.
With the cable hooked to the battery, I just buried it with clear glue stick so I could see what was happening.
It is as clean as the day I applied it and no white stuff anywhere.
(of course it won't work for you now that I've said it out loud, but it sure worked on my 4x4 toy.)

Picture of toy included since this is wte.
Anything that keeps the oxygen away will work.
I use axle grease, after the connection is clean and secure, it also makes it easy to disassemble.

Cleaning consists of baking soda mixed with some water and a wire brush.
Terminal connecting surfaces; as long as they have a metal shininess, I am happy, if it's sandpaper or a knife blade to scrape at the surface.
At the metal to metal mating surface of the connection, I use a deoxidizer grease.
