Never use Soap. I think most use vinegar and water.

I just use really hot wayet and a scourer.
That seems to get everything off.

Don't use any chemicals at all except vinegar.

I bleach everything to sterilize it, and vinegar to remove mineral deposits.

I soak items in vinegar for about 1-2 days then use a toothbrush dedicated to doing just that.
