Unhappy Cleaning with Vinegar

I had been using just hot water and a little bit of dish soap to clean the coroplast in Aeris' cage, but today I tried some vinegar since many of you use that. But the smell seems like it's lingering. When you clean with vinegar, do you just wait a long time before you put the fleece in and rearrange the cage? I want to put it all back together but I don't think I can stand the smell. How do you deal with that? I may go back to soap and water.

Did you use it straight-up or a 50/50 mix? We all use the 50/50 mix and it dissipates ~ after it's rinsed off with fresh water. We may just be used to the smell though!

Poured some in straight, oops. But I rinsed twice.

I use a mix of water and vinegar and it works great! However, when it co-mingles with poop it might be the most awful smell. Does anyone else notice this? lol

Yeah I tried cleaning a poopy wheel by putting a few drops of vinegar on my dishwand and oh boy, the smell I got once it mixed with the poop.

I think I'll stick to dish soap, it never seemed to bother my hedgehogs that I use it.
