Default Clearing cache decreases internal storage?

I have 4.2 JB on LG p500. Before rooting I use to clear cache to gain some internal space but now when I'm doing this it decreases the space ,and when I have stopped clearing cache the internal space is increasing by the same amount as the cache.
I'm confused what to make of this. Can anyone throw some light on this? Thanks a lot in advance
