Default fuse corrosion

G'day everyone
l have a 2005 883 new to me a few months ago. I thought I'd check the battery connections and fuses. The fuses have a little bit of white powder on them.
Whats the best way to clean them, and more importantly, the sockets they go into?
Just trying to ward off any future problems.
Thanks.

Remove the MaxiFuse...

Record where the misc fuses go (ratings must be right) - Remove all the fuses & the starter relay - Then spray the sockets with electrical contact cleaner - then put a light coating of dielectric grease on all the sockets - reinstall the fuses & relay...

This should be done every year or two to minimize corrosion... (especially if stored or operated in harsh environments)
