Could be the acidic component, yes. But really, plain water works, demineralized (distilled, either for car batteries, sterillizing ovens or medical grade) is better (no scaling, no other trace substances to add for possible factor shoukd anything awry happen), water + dish soap better still. I do just like someone reported earlier in the thread, a rougly 50/50 distilled water + alcohol (either isopropyl or ethanol, anhydrous) and some dish soap. Recently Ive been adding some automotive glass cleaner, which had no vinegar, and add a little (5-10ml in 500ml of the solution) for the pretty blue color and extra bubbles. No adverse effects so far, but no perceived benefit other than the pretty blue tint. Don sweat about it!
