corrosion on spoke nipples

Hi all quick question

I got some corrosion on the spoke nipples of my Ultegra/Open pro wheels. What's a good treatment for it. some oxalic acid? Is there a risk of the spokes/nipples/rim seizing up permanently like a seatpost or quill?

Get some Woody Wax and fine bronze wool from a boating store. It works great at removing corrosion and preventing it too. FWIW, bronze wool will not scratch anodized aluminum.
