I've seen a movie on Youtube couple of days back . It might help if your spinners are made out of copper :

I've never tested the method .

Please let me know if it works :-)

Good luck !

Cheers

hi dani,
thanks for that but i dont think itll work. copper oxide is relatively easy to deal with - but scratches - not so easy.

and secondly, the blades dont seem to be copper.
but ill tell you what, ill give it a bash anyway and let you know

Wash and clean the blades with the powder called "Pitamber", it will give back the shine,then paint the blades again.

A quick once over with a felt pad and polishing compund on a Dremel should do the job.

Take any acidic plant like clover, citrus and rub the juice , the shine will come back
