Camper plug terminal oxidation removal

Hi everyone. Just curious if anyone has or knows of, a product or way to clean up the tarnished or oxidized terminals in the female ends of a camper's power cord or extension cord.
Thanks!

Thanks Dave. Yeah, that is a strange way to link but it led to a few options for cleaning up terminals

Thanks!
Yes, fine steel wool. Buff it back to the clean copper color. Good to go. If your good, you can use 1600 grit sand paper, keeping in mind that your not trying to remove metal (copper), but just shine it back to a clean apperance.
