Cleaning a tank after fish died...

I want to get another betta but want to make sure the tank is cleaned well..

Its a plastic tank, and I heard white vinegar will be good...

If so, how much vinegar to use and to I soak or wipe it down?

Any help would be appreciated :)

You might want to find out why your Betta died first.

To insure your tank is clean and sterilized I would use 2 parts hot water to 1 part distilled vinegar. Adding aq salt to the mixture is also great.

Chocolate, Never going to know what happened to him. Hes been gone for weeks.
I tried to get help here but he died rather fast. Moved him from a larger tank to a smaller one when it broke. Water was good, noticed him breathing harder (gills moving in and out quick) Changed the water to make sure, next day he was dead.
Might have been stress but not sure...

Kenny, Thanks! I will give that a go :)

I just said that in case an accident it was not just sad random death I just suggested that in case the tank did it like a plastic plant so your next one lives a long live.
