Default cleaning a reservoir

I was going thru another box of gear I had forgotten about and came across this
It is still in great shape, but there is some residue left from the last time I used it (A64 days) What could I possibly use to clean it that wouldn't be harmful to the joints? Dish soap? I'm thinking I might use it again if it doesn't leak
Thanks in advance

dish soap should be fine i have never had a problem with it, but it might not get out all the yucky stuff. you can use some orange cleaner i always finds that works for me. my2cents

I had stains on my rez and it was difficult to get off completely.

I used vinegar in it and shook it for awhile and it fot most out. Then I stuck a Q-Tip in it to apply physical cleaning to the areas I could reach. Then with the vinegar again.
That process got most of the stains off for me.
When done I just put some distilled water in it and shake it up again and it will get rid of the vinegar that remains.

The dollar store will probably have some small "Baby Bottle Nipple" brushes which are perfect for this kind of cleaning/scubbing. (Much better than a Q-Tip)

Cool sswilson :)

I also love the dollar store = just walk around in there and you never know what handy liitle gadget will pop up.
Must make a mental note for baby bottle nipple brush next trip.
