Cleaning used tank

I just sold my nano-cube to my friend. He will change the tank from salt to fresh. He needs to clean the tank since there are lots of deposit on the side and in the back. What should he clean it with? Vinegar? How about muric acid? Thanks for your help.

vinegar would be the safest

Yep, white vinegar. You could try up to 100% full strength and rinse. I pick up a 1.5gal jug at Smart & Final, real cheap.
