Default cleaning wc parts

ok guys that is my situation

i build a lowend wc system for my girlfriend.. but i was used primochill dye with pc pure.. so now all part(water block, rad, tubing, pump) are red.. that was ugly

soon i will upgrade the rad(already ordered) so at the same time i want to clean it..

the part was:
pump dx-1
rad swiftech 120.1
magicool water block

i already order some juice and tubing to replace the red one

so my question is.. what did you use to clean all parts?
maybee a product liquide to pump inside of all part to clean?


Thanks
Phil

I dunno about getting dye out but I use vinegar and salt to clean my parts. Some use ketchup which is basically the paste version.

FWIW I disolve 1 or 2Tbsp per liter of vinegar. Just to give you a heads up it will dull shiny copper surfaces if left sitting for an hour or two. So don't drop your newly lapped and polished WB in that solution and leave it over night.
