Always at your service.
Vinegar is a weak acid and it does not disinfect.
Bleach is chlorine and kills everything.
Vinegar will remain in the system and cause low pH if not cleaned/removed properly, while bleach will vaporize within 24 hrs in water or while air drying.

Are there advantages to bleach vs vinegar?
im a noob but my research last week led to “its a trade off”. Bad guys die way faster with bleach but drying it out fully & properly is of paramount importance. With vinegar the bad guys still die - just takes a bit longer but you buy a bit of slack on the back end

+1 Both require drying time afterwards. With bleach, to ensure any residue has fully evaporated. (What's leftover just turns back to salt - harmless.) With vinegar the drying time ensures anything that the vinegar didn't kill is sterilized.
