Thank you, I did a lot of reading. Most of these are sticky and have buildup in the grooves and joints. I saw a lot of opinions about how much cleaning to do. I intend on making them "clean", removing corrosion, and leaving patina. I will start with the dish soap to clean off the sticky and go from there. I am a beginner, so any recommendations are welcome. I will be back if I get stuck.
