Default Re: Mains plug restoration

If it's an MK i remove the spiders, clean the pins and the fuseholder, if it's anything else of great age (particularly if the pins waggle from side to side) I bin it.
Spiders seem to like being inside plugs and junction boxes- warmth, electric field or just a convenient hidey hole from which to pounce on prey...?
