White vinegar

From: Barbara Appelbaum <aandh>

In the context of advising museums on going green(er):  The classic
non-toxic, sustainable, no-residue, household-type cleaning material
is white vinegar in water.  But the idea of using it in a museum
environment seems like a bad one.  Has anyone thought this one
through--how much acidity would really be involved?  What are
conservators recommending as a cleaning solution?  It often seems
easier to tell people what not to use than to recommend something!
