I disassemble the clamps and sand the teeth surfaces and the center spacer with 120 grit abrasive cloth (buy a sheet from your local hardware store - Bunnings in Australia for example - and cut a manageable size say 2 inches long by 1 inch wide). I don't believe you can really clean the surfaces effectively if you don't disassemble.

After sanding, wipe the surfaces with a dry cloth to get the dust off and reassemble. Screw the 4 little screws in keeping them as even as possible until they meet the screw opposite. That's all there is to it. I clean mine around every 18 stringjobs but I reckon they could be left for a lot longer than that. By the way, if the sanding scratches the surfaces, don't worry as the idea is to rough the surfaces up to increase holding ability.
