Cleaning a Tripod after Beach Shooting

Last week at Stray Angel Films we had a tripod returned after being used on a beach shoot.
There was a lot of sand all through the tripod and corrosion on the screws.

I did some research and found this very helpful thread on this forum.

One of the main things I learned from this thread is that experienced shooters
do a preventative “treatment” before taking their tripod to the beach. Some coat
the tripod screws with WD-40 and some use mineral oil. And upon returning from
the beach, rubbing alcohol appears to work well as a cleaner.

Any other tips and suggestions please let us know!
