Bleach and a scrub brush should work.

TIP:  Instead of acid washing glassware, we used bleach, alot of rinsing water
followed by a couple of DI water rinses when doing Silver Stains.  Found this
worked just as well.

Subject:  removing FeCl from glassware

Dear Colleagues,

Is there a method to remove the ferric chloride from glassware?  After
using 2% FeCl to differeniate the VVG, there is a yellow stain in the
glassware that is not removed by traditional hand washing of the glassware.

Thanks in adavance,

A GLP compliant laboratory
