Gunky coolant bottle..1 way to clean is.....

I can be a bit finicky about my car,and one thing i hate is that paraflu gunky blue/white residue that gets left on the inside of the coolant bottle.Just makes the place look untidy and as if the head gaket has gone
So,one way to clean it is this.Buy a 1500 caresonic ultrasonic cleaning machine and get to dipping Got some good results on the coolant and washer bottle,and the photos dont do it justice,but here goes...
Also included a photo of my cheapo repair of my inlet hose that connects to the throttle body.
Then some cleaning
Take it out and let it dry
and put it back,shame it was stained yellow
And the promised throttle body hose

Filling it with Rice (Uncooked) along with a dishwasher tab and hot water, then shaking it also works pretty well.

Denture tablets do the business as well.

bicarbonate of Soda is the business, gets rid of most crappy stains
