Default Tips to clean radiator

Hi,

I have a Nexxxos 240 radiator which I used in the past with my s939 setup. It wasn't been used for a while and now I found out that it has calcareous inside (don't know if this is the exact term in english).

How do I clean it?

My System Specs

Default maybe pure vinegar

as long as it is just limescale then acid will dissolve it..Ii suppose some good quality vinegar (acetic acid) should work?

Dip in CLR and water. If you dont have CLR buy rad flush at an autoparts store, mix with water, and dip.
