If filling them with hot PBW and letting them soak for a few days doesn't get them clean, I'd be scared to use them. There must've been some seriously nasty garbage in there if that doesn't work.

How often is it running to cost you that $50-100? That seems like an awful lot to me. My 13ft3 chest keezer only costs $25-$30/yr to run and that's going 24-7-365.
