Rub with scrap of steel wool, not cleaning pads, just plain steel wool.

Try shaking them in a jar of sand. A plastic peanut butter jar will work best. Hold it closed with duct tape and put it in the dryer for a couple of cycles.

It'll make some noise. Maybe you want to put it in a couple of thick socks. They ought to sparkle after that.

Does anyone know how to clean up old metal paper clips so they look shiny again? I have 7 boxes of Quill Jumbo Smooth paper clips that I've had stored in an old desk.
