Default cleaning watercooling

i ran my wc setup to test for about 20 min. But, then i heard i should have cleaned out my rads with vinegar. Should i go ahead and clean them out?

whats the process to do that, just pour some in, let it sit, then pour it out?

No vinegar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot tap water, then rinse with distilled.
