Procrastinating

I bought a crucible kiln years back and some Fenton cullet to make my own rods. I have been stalling on this basically because I don't know how to prepare the crucibles. I have one that has never been used and two with a bit of glass of unknown COE in it..probably 90. However the Fenton isn't compatible with anything. So my questions are:
Can I use the crucibles as they are with the remnant glass in the bottom?
Should I scrape it out best I can?
Do I need to treat the new crucible?
Any words of advice or wisdom?

Re: Procrastinating

Maybe put some sacrifice glass in the crucible, heat it up and pour them out (stuck, or melted together). I do not do glass pouring, but I do metal casting using furnaces, crucibles and other similar tools, but I would have only one kind of metal going into each crucible, where you could not have a crucible for each type/color of glass.
