I this 10G has been sitting empty for a few months..

Plain warm water and a plastic scrubber of some sort, clean off any debris but won't scratch the glass.

You can use baking soda and vinegar, make it like consistency of tooth paste, use a soft cloth, rinse really well after

100 percent in agreement with the baking soda route. Just make sure you get all of it out.

That tank looks clean. I would wipe it down with vinegar and give it a good rinse.

Well it pretty much is clean, I was just planning on that warm water rinse the first replier suggested.
