You can put it in a self cleaning oven, and it will come out spotless, with all residue removed, down to the bare iron, much cleaner than anything you will buy in a store (store and factory employees handled it right after their washroom breaks!) Dust it off, and oil it with Crisco or equivalent immediately or it will rust. (I've seen the rust start to form in less than an hour, so "immediately" is the operative word!) Season it with a thick coat of Crisco, and bake in a 450F oven for two hours.
