caring for nickel silver hardware

A graphite fly rod I wrapped for a friend has nickel silver hardware on the reel seat. Recently I had a chance to see the rod, and my friend has badly neglected he nickel silver; evidently he didn't know that NS needs regular care. What is the best treatment to use to get recover the NS at least close to its original beauty?
Thanks, jack
