Think Twice Before Using Vinegar To Clean Your Patio Pavers
With about 5% acetic
acid, vinegar is a potent cleaning agent. However, this same quality makes
it a wrong choice for cleaning patio pavers, as it may damage the material.
Vinegar's acid chemically reacts with the natural stone, causing dullness, burning, or etching, and the acid eats away at the sealant, exposing stones underneath to wear and tear.
It further compromises the surface's integrity to cause chips, pockmarks, and cracks. So, for pavers made from anything like cement, brick, limestone, or clay, vinegar is a no-go.
