I'd rub some standard motor oil (ie 10w30) all over the sockets. This
will usually take most of the light rust off. If not try some very
find sand paper (ie. wet/dry 600 grit). The only problem with this
is the sandpaper will scratch the chrome plating. But if the rust
is too much it is about the only way to go that I know of.
