Default Cleaning questions

I picked up a Mya Bambino from a friend today and saw it was in pretty bad shape mostly green oxidization on the downstem, tray, and a bit of residue in the vase. I really like the hookah and would like to use it asap, I had planned on the lemon juice and baking soda to start the clean up process but I was wondering if there is anything else I can do to clean it up solidly to clear out the residual gunk and crap from the previous owner who obviously never took care of it. I'd like to be able to try it out later tonight or tomorrow any help or suggestions would be awesome.... Thanks in advance to the hookahpro.com community

lemon juice and baking soda will work just fine, if you don't have any brushes i suggest you get some. just rinse it out with water and you're good to go

damn, that blows man. Well.... atleast now you know how to clean it later on.

Also, those denture cleaning tabs are good for clearing up the gunk in the base.

Damn, that sucks, man. So is the bambino unusuable now?
Also if you don't have any brushes you could possibly use a toothbrush. It's long enough for the bambino since the bambino is small.

I hope your friend is nice enough to refund you if you paid money for it.
