buckets for water

I work in a food processing factory so I have unlimited access to 5 gallon food grade buckets for my water. These buckets had liquid sugar in them. My stupid question of the day is...is just a good rinsing with hot water good enough to clean them? I was thinking about using bleach but thought that might stay in the plastic...

I wish I had access to buckets. I have to pay for mine from HD and its 6 bucks a bucket

Yes just clean with dawn dish soap and air dry to remove the smell for a few days
