Popup not holding water in sink


I am working in a house where the popup's are not keeping water in the vanity sinks. The previous owners were not cleaners by any stretch. There is lime and soap built up on the stoppers. Will I run into problems if I just remove the ball joint, soak the stoppers in vinegar, clean them and reinstall???? Will I have issues with the shaped washer that fits around the ball thingie ( not sure what to call it) if I do not replace them. I tried to find new ones at Home Depot and they do not carry them. I just do not want any leaks from the popups Do I need to buy new stoppers??

Any hints that will make this process easier, I have six sinks to do, would be very much appreciated!!!!!!!!!
