What is safe for cleaning my tank?

My old 15g needs to be cleaned in a bad way and I was wondering if there were any safe cleaners or anything around the house I could use to clean my tank with. I feel dumb asking bc I feel like there's an obvious answer

you can use white vinegar or unscented bleach. make sure its unscented though and you have to let everything dry completely so the bleach will dry up

If the crud is calcium or lime deposits from evaporation, you could try a damp cloth with salt, or a baking soda in water solution. Acid would work best (white vinegar) but if you want to work with what ya'll got. . .
