Rub some ketchup on the copper part, let sit for a min and wash off.

They will look just like new.

I'd go with baking soda. pour a 1/2 cup, and gently rub the surface with a wash cloth, for really stuck stuff make a paste with a bit of water baking soda and dawn and let it sit for awhile, then scrub gently.
