cleaning plug contacts

All my 67's electrical plugs are dirty inside and I would like to clean them.
(horn relay , head light connectors etc)
Do they come apart?
How do you guys clean these connectors?
thanks as always

There are special pick sets that are made to go inside the connectors to depress the metal locking tab so it can be slid out of the connector. Unles you are experienced in this, you're better off leaving them alone and cleaning the male end of the connection with electrical contact cleaner and a scotch brite pad.
