Hi Mr Piter, none of these require any special treatment. A wash with soapy water and a clean with a soft brush should be all that is ever needed. Make sure to dry then off carefully afterwards.

Zinc badges if they have "zinc rot" (where the metal turns white and powdery) can be treated with either WD40 or Vaseline.

Cheers, Ade.
