    As long as you rinse the vinegar well it will be fine to use bleach.

    Bleach + Vinegar = Toxic Chlorine Gas.

    While the combination does create a good disinfectant, these two common cleaning agents should never be used at the same time.

    [*] Adding any weak acid to bleach will release toxic chlorine and chloramine vapors.

    No problem if you thoroughly rinse between products, including enough water to flush plumbing traps.

    Be aware you should not add any type of acid to bleach, not just ammonia or vinegar.

    Rinse thoroughly with water, THEN do the bleach afterwards, if you must. It's ammonia and bleach that are the dangerous (read: fatal) partners together. https://www.clorox.com/how-to/laundry-basics/bleac...

    Actually, it's ammonia and bleach that you should never mix together (as it releases deadly chlorine gas).
