new build, how do i clean tank?

Hello everyone,
I just finished sanding and polishing my new acrylic tank. I used the standard water and dish soap method to do the sanding, I then clean wiped it with dry Terry cloth towels, I then used Maguires ScratchX to polish. Now, undeniably there is old soapy/polish residue all throughout the tank. So, what is the best way to thoroughly clean the tank so as to prevent any sort of contamination/harm to the soon-to-be-new inhabitants?

Bleach works on glass. I would think it is ok for acrylic too. Bleach will also dissapate or you can neutralize with dechlorinator.

Hmmm... If you're unsure about bleach I definitely won't go that route until someone can confirm it will be ok... Do you have any other suggestions? I appreciate the input.

Anyone, please, I need to clean out residue but don't want to hurt the tank/future inhabitants... Can anyone give me some input? Thank you.
