Is Vinegar Harmful to Hamsters?

When cleaning my hamster's cage I used Distilled White Vinegar to remove the urnie stains. It wasn't all dry when I returned my hammie to the cage and she managed to lick some up. Is this harmful for her or not?

Simple answer to your question...Is she still alive?

Urine stains or sediment...I just straped it off the cage with a flat knife and didn't worry about getting it all off, 'cause the hamster will make the stain there again. I also had the hamster in an old aquarium which meant that when I straped the area I was scraping glass not plastic, like many hamster cages are made of. Glass is very easy to clean.
