Stainless steel flask cleaning

How is the best way to clean out a new stainless steel fask for safety and taste?

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Ed, I just happen to have a sealed bottle of 190 proof Everclear, and no, it's not for free either, hee, heee!!! Seriously, just squirt some dishwashing liquid in it, fill it about half to three quarters with very hot water, cap it, shake it up good, and let it stand for about 15 minutes. Then shake it up again, pour out the soapy water, and keep refilling it with very hot water and shaking it around and pouring it out to rinse it clean. It'll be like brand new.

Everclear makes an excellent pipe cleaner!

Sure they do. Luxco makes both 190 and 151 proof. See:

Ahhhhh, very good, glad to hear that. Here's to good old Everclear, which cleared my head so many times between 1978-1983.
