Decontaminating water tanks

Actually, I assume there''s diesel in only the bilge tank, the saving grace. Ya. I''m figuring on a long-handled scrub brush, a pressure washer, bicarb of soda, peroxide, starbrite maybe AFTER a scrub and rinse with dish soap. Bilge filled with water sitting on hard, diesel dripped, filmed the bilge water and, I''m assuming, drifted into the empty water tank where I''d left the inspection port one thread down. Dumb. Forward tank is high and dry though, with 70 gals.
