I was in the same situation you were. Here's what I did:
After I cut the top off, and rinsed it out (wait until you get a whiff of what's inside
) I put about 10 gallons of water in it and brought it to a boil for 15 minutes. After the boil, I added oxiclean and let it soak for about 24 hours. Then I scrubbed it with Bar Keepers Friend (you can find it at Walmart or many hardware stores carry it).
Looks like new after that.
