Wire wheel it.
I used wire brushes on mine but power tools are quicker and more effective.

But you need to rinse it off really well. Otherwise it will just look chalky when it dries. And wear rubber gloves.

Kidding.

The other options given above seem reasonable.

Chemical cleaners are good at removing brake dust and surface contaminents but to remove metallic corrosion product you need to erode it.

You can also shot blast it with walnut shells.
I have a very inexpensive media blasting gun that attaches to my air compressor and works like a hot dam.

Try the wire wheel first. Buy a simple wheel that attaches to a drill or use an air tool.
A wire brush and elbow grease is the cheapest.
