now that sweet pea is tamer, i have taken to grooming her. i treated her fleas and they are dead, but quite a bit of dirt and scabs remain.

does anyone have any advice on what shampoo (non-medicated) i should use to get all the dry dead skin and blood off her?

she loves to be fussed over, i got most of it out via brushing, but some on the skin wont come off.

My favorite shampoo is Furminator Shampoo (available at PetCo and PetSmart). Whatever product you decide to use, just be sure it is made for cats.

some people shampoos are okay as long as they dont have meds in them. We settled on an oatmeal shampoo for cats.

Good choice, as the oatmeal will help sooth the skin. As a former groomer, make sure you shake the shampoo up well before you use it as it will work much better for you.
