Sorry, didn't see this question till now. I use dishwashing soap and hot water. The frosting comes out pretty easily and does not leave a flavor. I got a couple pickle buckets and they took two years to lose the vinegar smell. When dumpster diving for buckets I came across occasionally the commercial dishwashing soap buckets. There would usually be a cup or so of soap left I could get out after the lid was removed. This soap had a red component that was very strong cleaner and a blue rinse agent that would neutralize the red when rinsing. I learned to be careful what container I stored the red in as it ate through a clear plastic restaurant drink cup after sitting in it a few days. But plain dishwashing soap would work fine too.
