for stuck on gunk try a toilet stone (new of course) this will remove most stuck on or burned on food. for the person with a sticky residue, you probably had too much oil in the pan when you seasoned it, which turned to "shelac" with heat. Try putting peanut butter in the pan (about 1/8 in. thick) and let set for several days. then scrape out the peanut butter (discard) , soke in water overnight, and then scrub with steel scrub brush. Once the residue is removed, soak again , then scrub, dry and season as usual.
