So I might not be as experienced in equipment. However I've spent a lot of time experimenting with different things and what I found is that vinegar kinda works with a potato scrubber but I lost morale once I started getting tired of scrubbing. Also a BIG thing I've had success with in the tension rods is white lithium grease to keep them from rusting or whatever. As for shining, I haven't worried too much on that as I have been more concerned on finding a feel for tuning. But if you find out how to restore hardware definitely let me know

Mainly, the biggest thing is lubrication. You want to really make sure that you're keeping up on greasing the lugs on all the drums. Cleaning the old off the rim and other parts completely, then re-greasing them when it's about time. Just get some soft rags that won't leave behind fuzz and stuff, use those to wipe down the drums. You can even use Windex as far as I'm concerned for cleaning off the wraps on the drums and such. If you have drums that have black hardware, like black wooden hoops, for example, they're probably gonna get nicks and scratches over time. You could simply find a black gel-marker and color in the wood, etc. From a distance, you can't even tell the difference. Just a few suggestions.
