Peggy Hall (the Head Mistress - Who sold her business to Raritan) Says that adding vinegar won''t be harmful to KO or CP, she does advise its use. Though bleach or chemicals will render KO useless.
Check her archives She says
"after you''ve flushed the fresh water through, follow it with a cup of white vinegar. Don''t rinse the vinegar out.
NEVER use bleach...nor any chemical bowl cleaners, ammonia, Lysol, pine oil cleaners, solvents or anything containing alcohol or any petroleum products. These not only are harmful to rubber, neoprene and Lectra/San electrodes, they break down hoses."
