If its from the pet store then a wash out with the garden hose will suffice. If its from a private party (used tank ) you might want to wipe it down with some vinegar and then wash it out again.

I use a sponge with warm water. There is usually dust on the glass and rinsing may not remove it, so a soft sponge (aquarium-use only obviously) helps. Then I rinse it.
