My first reaction would be get rid of them,lol! I hate mine. But to keep them sliding, we put WD-40 in the tracks. Other than that, you can wipe them down with Murhey's oil soap. I wouldnt get them to wet as they have a backing glued on.

I sprayed mine with clear acrylic. I'm sure Silver Threads would say I now have shiny ugly tambours.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
