What size carboy, if it is a 6 or 6.5 gal carboy you probably won't want to keep it in there for long since you won't have that nice layer of CO2 to keep your beer from getting oxide. If it is a 5 gal carboy then it wouldn't be big enough to use as a primary fermentor if you are doing 5 gal batches.

If you can I would get some oxiclean and let it soak over night with that, I personally would avoid using bleach becuase if you don't rinse it good enough you'll get the chlorine/bleach flavor/smells in the beer.
