How can I remove greasy film from glass and plastic dishes?

Well, this is embarrassing. I threw a bunch of dishes of varying degrees of dirtiness in the sink to soak, forgot about them, and went away for three days. Now I have several glass cups and some tupperware coated with a nasty greasy film. Regular washing and scrubbing with steel wool pads didn't quite get rid of it. I really don't want to throw these out. I have access to the regular soaps and stuff and a single basin sink. I don't have a dishwasher. Is there a way to get these back to the way they were?
