The battery is an optimal and is only two years old and is fine. The alternator was checked and is good. So I boost the car to start and its fine till the next morning. The battery loses the charge and has to be boosted again. I even. Removed all cables and have cleaned the contact area but still same issue the next day.

So the battery was actually load tested as bad when it nwas fully charged?Also the alternator was tested?You said you removed the battery cables and the battery was dead the next day. Did you only remove the cables for cleaning then put them back on and the next day the battery was dead?If so then the first thing you need to do is check for ia excessive parastic draw.
