Acid wash with nitric acid, a 50% solution works well, and let it stand in
a hood, in an inert container or the acid will eat a metal sink.  I clean
up silver deposits this way, and this should work.  Sulfuric acid/potassium
dichromate solutions are forbidden now, since you can't drain dump the
chromate solution.  You can reuse the nitric, and neutralize to get rid of it.
