+1 for heat.  Scrub as much as you can off, heat it, and scrub again.

Any specific item to scrub with?

A plastic spatula or one of those plastic scrubbing pads for dishes.
You don't want to gouge the stone with metal.

Heat it up in your oven for an hour.  Use a wet towel and some tongs to wipe it off.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

You meant damp, right ?   Too wet could possibly crack the stone.

I should have been more specific on heat. Cleaning cycle of oven will incinerate everything on the stone.  >:D

No need to do anything but put it in your koda and let it get up to 900F or so then brush it off.
