I have alot of cast iron pans and a few of them I have puchased very cheap at garage sales and boy did they look nasty, People must of thought I was nuts buying them, Took them home -some I sprayed with oven cleaner first, others i put a wire brush bit in a drill and cleaned it, then brillo pads, sand paper. You can't hurt it. Just reseason it.
I generally will do on my gas grill so it doesn't stink the house up. I have one dish I make that just makes the pan not a easy wipe out. I use brillo pad -soap and water - then I put on a burner and heat it up and then wipe it down with oil on a paper towel or back to the grill -- I have no problems. I also will do the same for my stove top grill --I had a friend thought she was going to have a heart attack when she saw me put one in soapy water once. I proved to her it was fine. The big secret is Reseason !!!! You can't hurt it ITs Cast Iron

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching
