To get most of the old stuff out, what you should do is dump as much coolant that'll come out as possible then refill with water. Drive until the thermostat opens, then dump again, so most of the old coolant that was behind the thermostat comes out. Then fill with coolant mix.

Can you just run a hose thru the motor and the radiator to get the same effect? Clean each seperately...
