Alternatively, a quick dip in TarnX (thiourea tarnish remover) should 
brighten them right up.  Note that TarnX contains a chemical 
(thiourea) that has been found by the State of California to be a 
carcinogen....  (Luckily, I don't live in CA.  It's apparently not 
carcinogenic here.)

One of the pink paste silver polishes on a wet sponge would probably 
also work, but could remove some of the tin -- though likely not as 
much as an eraser.

Best regards,
