How to quickly clean out old remaining references to "dead" form controls?

I have an app that has a rather large number of references to "dead" controls on a form. In other words, references to old TLabel's, TPanel's, TCheckboxes, etc that are not there anymore on the form. These obsolete controls however still remain in the Object Inspector, though the control no longer exists. Does anyone know of a "quick" way to clean all these old references out?

Thanks

strange.... if delete component from form - and save after that - ide should remove all refs.
Try close project and delete all but except *.dpr, *.dproj, *.pas, *.dfm, *.res,  and files specific to application (ini, db files, ...) - then reopen project again.

Found the problem to this, and I'm a little embarrassed about it - I had a whole other TabbedNotebook full of controls hiding underneath the current PageControl that my project was using. I remember I had re-used some very old code in this project, but totally forgot about just masking over that old TabbedNotebook. Sorry for the wild goose chase guys...

Cheers
