Try white (not gel) toothpaste! I use it to get the tarnish off of my sterling silver earrings.

I would imagine the hinges are solid brass, not plated. I think Brasso and Wrights make polish for brass in liquid or paste form that you apply with a damp sponge and wipe off. Pretty easy.

You can take the door down and place the hinges in warm soapy water and use steel wool to clean. However, I find it much easier to tape a wide area around the hinges and spray paint them. They stay free of rust and I can change the color.
