How do I clean the hand grips?

The easiest way to clean the grips is to use a pre-moistened wipe (Clorox® or any generic store brand).

How do I keep the cutting and pliers blades clean and rust-free?

A light oil like WD-40® works well. Put a small amount of it on a soft cloth and wipe the cutter/pliers blades as well as the rivet area and other exposed metal surfaces.  This process also acts as a rust preventative. Here’s a video demonstrating the process by @csldesigns on Instagram:
