I have been reading about using CH3COOH + H2O (vinegar) as a mild antibacterial and antiviral agent. For example: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15698693/
Note, before anyone gets confused (or concerned), this has nothing to do with the SARS-CoV2 virus which causes COVID-19. I strongly doubt vinegar is effective at killing a coronavirus, and everything I have read confirms that doubt (the pH is too high, for starters).
Now, back to the topic at hand. Does CH3COOH + H2O lose its antibacterial and antiviral properties when exposed to room temperature air for a long duration (over 8 hours, but less than 500 hours)?
I've been trying to find scientific articles regarding this, and so far, have not found anything helpful.
Ideally, I would love to see one or more graphs that plot effectiveness along one axis and time duration of air exposure along the other. Of course, tables with data points would be equally welcome.
Note that I'm not looking for anything exact, as there are too many variables to be precise without getting into minute details. I'm looking for a general idea of the changes (if any) over time as CH3COOH + H2O is exposed to room temperature air.
