How to clean the old gunk out of a Spridget gas tank?

I once tried to weld gas tank that I had washed out with soap and water. At the first flame it went Whooomp and went from a square to a round gas tank. Scared the heck out of me. So cooking the tank over an open flame didn't seem like a something I wanted to do again given that experience.
If the tank is full of water how can it go whooomp? Water doesn't go whooomp. :smile:

Wise decision, methinks.
