Wash with fresh water. Do not oil them.

ok thanks, but they are scratching a bit when they turn.
And i have another problem, it's really hard to rise the main, do i need to wash the block at the top of the mast or to oil the main sleeve ?

English is fine.

Maybe use something like silicone spray or McLube Sailkote.

Silicone works well for the blocks, travelers, jam cleats and luff line. It is relatively cheap.
