removing completely such corrosion is neary impossible, the spring is
usually helicoidal and can't be polished all around.

Water have to be avoided as much as possible.

if *only* the spring is corroded cleaning it may solve partly the

spring will corrode naturally and you will have to clean it again often.

there is no complete solution
