Cleaning up tools

Ok guys, Ive been working out in the elements a lot lately which means my tools have been getting wet and snowed upon. Some of my pliers and channel locks are getting rusty and a bit stiff, and my one set of needle noses are basically seized up. Any suggestions on what I can use to free these back up again...

thanks in advance
