I clean my battery and a week later there is corrosion back on the terminals, why is this happening?

Two things could be going on here, first if you don,t clean the terminals completely the corrosion will return rather quickly, so be sure you remove the cables and use a battery cleaning product to completely clean the battery.The other thing that happens is the battery seal around the post fails and the acid comes right up the post and begins to corrode right after you have cleaned it, in this case the battery will need to be replaced.  A note please be very careful around a corroded battery a spark can cause the battery to explode!  It may be best to take your car to a shop for a battery service.
