I want to resuscitate my blue steel bread pans

I have just joined this site, and hope someone will come to my rescue.  Today I dragged out my 30-year-old blue steel bread pans, which I haven't used in many years.   Before baking I oiled them, but the bread stuck badly anyway.  I guess I need to re-season them, but don't know how.  I hope someone can help me with this, because I recall that my breads used to bake beautifully and slip right out of the pans.  Also I never washed them - just wiped them out after use.  During the years of disuse, they got dusty and grimy, and my washing them first may have been a mistake.  I hope they can be saved!
