Cleaning clay tiles

I use a set of unglazed tiles for baking pizza and bread. The residue from the semolina and/or cornmeal that lingers burns and smokes to high heaven.

How do you clean your clay tiles or clay insert?

I just wash mine with soap & warm water & scrub off burnt-on gunk with a sponge/scrubber. They are discolored, but I haven't had any problems with odors or smoking. The instructions for mine warn against using them when wet or moist, so I let them dry thoroughly before using them again. I've had this set for several years now & haven't had any problems.

I run mine in the oven self clean cycle and it comes out like new all stains and carbon gone.

I use unglazed quarry tiles; when I need to clean them, I just leave them in the oven and run the self-clean cycle. Works like a charm. Doesn't crack the tiles (tiles were made originally at much higher temperatures than a self-clean cycle).
