Reflector cleaning?

What's the best way to clean reflectors? I'm about to setup another tank and have an older light fixture for it, that the reflector has a bunch of calcium and junk on it. What's good to clean them with?

Tank isn't running atm, so no concerns with chemicals getting in the tank or anything.

White vinegar will remove the calcium. You can wet a paper towel and lay that on the reflector while it's off the tank. I would follow that up with a good cleaning with RODI water.
