Default Tarnish (?) on tips

I did not notice this when I took them out of the box, but now that they're on, they've developed this nasty tarnish looking black crap... what kinda product would I use for this? They're stainless steel.

A mild polish should fix it right up. If you have some silver cleaner that would work as well. I would start with Scratch X if you have to buy a product.
