Connect them to Vampire wire ?

A paste of baking soda if they are attached to interconnects. Otherwise, dip them into a solution of baking soda and salt with a piece of aluminum foil on the bottom of the container (although the solution may have an effect on the plastic housing???...dunno).
Also, you could try CAIG DeOxit.
Thanks guys...Guess I'm basically trying to avoid using pasty stuff that will be impossible to get all out of the cracks.
Jbello...What would vampire wire do? They are connected to BMC nearly silver cable.
S23chang...is this the stuff thats a watery liquid and you dip? If the body of these things where not plastic I guess I would be less timid with them...don't want them to dissolve on me!
Fmpnd...You can rinse all the Tarnish Sheild off easily? I think I have that around.
Lazarus28 - Please....no more! Please :-)
firstname.lastname@example.org - I've read other threads comparing nexgens and everyone agrees the WBT's outperform by a large margin...although these better most others. Don't know about Purist though my Zen silver's are plugged into thier rca-xlr adaptors...which seem very transparent.
PS, the eichman's came attached to my Black Mountain Cable "nearly" silver pinnicles, which are pretty decent cables.
If you go to either Radio Shack or Fry's you can pick up a cleaning kit made by Caig for about $20. This kit includes the Caig DeoxIt and the Caig Gold plus cleaning tips, wipes etc. Just follow the directions and you will have nice new looking well protected plugs.
The silver tarnish is NOT "slightly more conductive" and should be removed.
