I have always used 20% nitric with excellent results.

Subject: [Histonet] acid clean glassware

I have searched the archives  for info. on replacing potassium 
dichromate sulfuric acid glass cleaner. I  came up with a few 
suggestions namely, nitric acid or a  Clorox bleach wash.  I was 
wondering what your current opinions are of  these suggestions.  Do you 
still like them and do they work as well as suggested?  Is there a 
commercial cleaner that works just as well?
