On my ITs I use a garden hose then run it a bit to dry the cooling fins out.

Drain system completely. Fill with distilled water. Start and allow to reach temperature. Allow to cool and drain. Repeat. Refill with proper coolant being sure to belled any air. Running to temperature allows it to flush areas unreachable by other methods and can loosen any scale stuck to internals.
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
