I usually evac the reservoir with a vacuum pump, a turkey baster would work also. Refill with clean fluid, run the engine and cycle steering wheel lock to lock a couple times. Repeat several times and should be good. There are other ways but they get messy or need to be done with an actual recycler machine.
