What's worked well for me, (this was suggested in another thread here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14861&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=brasso&start=0)) was to buy a little thing of Brasso.
I bought mine at Albertson's, but Walmart has it too (I'm sure any hardware type place would have it as it's a metal polish).

Grab some of that and you'll be good to go! :thumbsup:

Mine discolored when I used them shortly after putting lotion on. I think rebecca had a similiar experience.

I guess if it's not affecting the slickness or speed of the needles (mine was, so I got the brasso to clean them), then I wouldn't worry about it.

Or maybe get some thin latex gloves or something to wear while you knit. :shrug:
