What is the best way to clean my french press?

Fill it with a 1/1 mix of white vinegar and hot water and let it sit, then push the press up and down a bunch of times, then do this again with hot water and dishsoap, then rinse really well.
I find it I rinse my french press in REALLY hot water immediately after using it then put it on the drain, I only have to really clean it occasionally. I mean immediately, right after making coffee. The longer you let it set, the harder the residual oils are to clean from the press.
If it’s only somewhat dirty, just hot water and dishsoap will probably work. If the spring part of the press won’t come clean, soak it in the vinegar/water then go after it with an old toothbrush.
