Nothing smells worse than rotten potato juice that has run down the gap at the back of a locker......Have you checked the Potatoes.

Battery acid comes to mind.

(BTW, I was taught by Nuns in grammar school, and priests in High school. In those days
one Nun almost broke my fingers with a hickory stick, and a Priest smacked me in the back of the head so hard my head hit the desk. All that I am I owe to them, and may the grave yard sod rest gently on their chests.)

I am just a big ol' silly nerd and will be till the day I die. I do however find that since moving aboard my boat I tend to get overly caffeinated and that can cause vowel movements =D

The redacted post contained a couple of joking points, one being the linked chart is for natural rubber only. Other types of rubber like cyano's, polyacry's and some fluo's will have a reaction to acetic acid. This would include many types of gloves, o-rings, gaskets, weatherized coatings, pipe insulation, coated organic plastics (like certain mounted wiring guides), flexible containers and the occasional coated surface of cheap cabinet liners =D
AncientTech...

No offense taken and I hope we had a good laugh over this... definitely not something to linger bad taste over...

That being said yes vinegar does pose many issues with materials and it's a good exercise to look at the materials we are going to spray and douse with vinegar or any other product on any parts in the boat or other uses... compatibility with any chemical even a benign product like vinegar or Clorox has it's dangers... here is another useful guide to vinegar and it's compatibility with other rubber/non rubber materials...
