Default Using vinegar

Is there a difference between Apple Cider Vinegar and regular vinegar? I am going to clean my keet's cage soon, and normally I use Apple Cider Vinegar, but my mom bought regular vinegar because there was a sale and they were out of the other. I just wanted to see if there was any difference between the two.

Thanks!

Apple Cider Vinegar is for drinking by the budgies.
Regular vinegar acts as a neutralisation liquid for zinc and galvanized wires for cages.

Both are not disinfectant. I think some members use F10-SC Disinfect.

i have always used a dilution of milton baby fluid for all disinfection needs, mix at approx 1 capfull to 5 ltrs warm water, it can be used on cages, nestboxs, perches, walls floors and anywhere else, its made for steralizing baby bottles so its 100% safe.

well, I am sure there are better disinfectants out than vinegar...

However, it is a wonderful cleaner, non toxic and biodegradable.

And it does not matter in this application if you use cider or regular. I use regular for cleaning, sometimes when I am out I use cider vinegar, but the smell is a bit weird, to much like food.

(I like a drink made from 1 table spoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey and filled up with water, really refreshing)

Milton is great for cleaning. Jsut rinse well

vinegar is also great as stated for neutralising,
and even the cleaning process. Also wont harm
the birds.

Apple Cidar Vinegar is very different from say white
vinegar. You can use apple cidar when sprouting seeds to
stop mould growing.

ACV:
You’ll know you’ve found the right stuff if you see sediment. Do NOT buy white distilled vinegar, as it has none of the beneficial elements listed above. Apple cidar
is if you are going to orally give it to the birds.

Teegzy, you're awesome You just solved my problem with sprouting.

And I don't use anything to clean my cages, but, my hot water gets near boiling and I use thick rubber gloves to clean. I don't use any cold water either. So, I practically boil my cage.

HURRAY!

I also use roasting water to clean down my cages. In between I get
the hose and hose down the large cage. But I wash down all toys
and perches. You can put vinegar into that water too and it helps
with cleaning I think Or try the milton and rinse well
