If nothing else works, as a last resort try Castrol SuperClean (I think 
that's the right name... it's definitely made by Castrol, and typically 
sold at auto parts stores).  I've used it more for car restoration when 
you want to remove thirty-plus years of baked on grime.  The stuff is 
concentrated, and pretty nasty.  I suggest wearing a respirator if you 
have one.

This stuff is pretty strong, so be careful using it.
