Just use regular vinegar you get at the store and use luke warm water. Rinse thoroughly.

Regular white vinegar. For tough spots (coraline, scale, etc.) you can use a paper towel soaked in the vinegar and leave it sit for awhile.

Use a scrubber like for bug removal on cars, not a green pad or something abrasive.
