Question How do you clean a new tank?

Hey guys! =]

I just got a new 5 gal kit from Walmart a week or so ago but I've been at work and haven't gotten to do anything with it yet. =/

I want to set up my tank and start a fishless cycle tonight but I'm not sure how to clean my tank.

I remember reading at least 2 threads on it back in November or December but I can't find them again and I've forgotten. =[

I know I can use bleach or vinegar but I can't remember any rules or specifics. =[

Any help would be greatly appreciated! =]

I'm a girl! =]

On a new tank that was in enclosed in a box, IMO/E a good rinse in warm water.
If it was not enclosed in a box I would use a diluted vinegar and warm water and then rinsing well with warm water.

Salt-bathed would do the trick too.
