They should be self-cleaning, John, by virtue of sufficient grip in the socket 
to cut through the crud and make a connection.  I would go in beside each 
contact in the female with a sewing pin, and attempt to increase the contact 
pressure by a slight bend.  How you do it would depend on whether that socket 
has the round contact, or the split leg variety.  The split leg is obvious, 
the round pin needs to be wedged to close the opening where the two rolled 
edges meet.

Cheers, Gene
