OUtside a good washing usually helps. Use mild soap and water dapen rinse and wipe dry. Inside just a damp rag will usually help. Do not get the paper on the inside wet as mos of it is put on with water soluble glue. Some hardware was brass plated others were blued steel. If they were plated they can be replated if blue steel remove any loose rust and treat with naval jelly. Straps that are not too badly deteriorated can be cleaned treated with neets foot oil and waxed with shoe polish.
