Cleaning winche handles

I have a box of winch handles to clean - they are dirty, corroded and possibly pitted and all in varying degrees. I have asked around and have been told to soak them in WD40, transmission oil, and lots of other stuff. I''m trying to find the best way and haven''t had one suggestion come up more than once. And after soaking - do you wire brush them? Then polish? Next job will be tackling the winches themselves - a good guide I could follow on that would be appreciated! Thank you. Paula
