Don't try to clean them. It's most likely just a layer of quartz on the element. It is true that 6/12's do have a tendency known as a life span, I would not replace them until they break. Your straps do wear out however.

All this being said, a spare set of element on the shelf is not a bad idea. It takes about three weeks to bring them in from the time they're ordered/
