@Martin Bros. Contracting, Inc: I highly agree with you. Vinegar, even well diluted will cause damage over time. Vinegar has its uses, but must be used with caution on any porous surface, sealed or not.

With this "back to the basics" cleaning mode - no chemicals please..... people have been inundated with articles about "natural cleaning" or non-chemical cleaning etc. The tendency is to overuse and that will cause problems over time.

When I use vinegar as a cleaning agent or softener (laundry, oven cleaning, window/mirror cleaning), I make sure I measure everything carefully and rinse thoroughly. When one simply "eyeballs" a measurement, it's generally too much. This happens frequently with laundry detergent, then people wonder why their clothes smell or the machine has odors or gets gunked up.
