Cleaning oxidation off of sail hanks?

I have two headsails, a 110% which I use primarily, and a storm jib that I have never used. The storm jib hanks are covered in green oxidation to the point that it's very hard to open them. Is there a safe way or product to use to clean them while they are on the sail so that I don't damage the material?

The're bronze. Any metal cleaner (like Brasso) safe for brass will work. And a little lubricant will help them work better.
