UPDATE Feb 8, 2023... ABC News FABULOSO RECALL: 4.9 million Fabuloso cleaning products recalled due to bacteria risk. A number of popular Fabuloso cleaning products were recalled Wednesday by the Colgate-Palmolive Company due to risk of bacteria contamination, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. About 4.9 million units -- as well as about 56,000 units in Canada -- of various Fabuloso Multi-Purpose Cleaner products were impacted by the recall, according to the CPSC. The affected products were produced from Dec. 14, 2022 through Jan. 23, 2023, according to the company. "We are voluntarily recalling certain Fabuloso products because a preservative was not added at the intended levels during manufacturing," Fabuloso said in a statement on its official recall website. "With inadequate preservative, there is a risk of bacteria growth in the recalled products. The recalled products can contain Pseudomonas species bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water."
Vinegar may be fine for Ceramic tile floors that has a kiln baked glazed finish, but Mexican tile has no baked on finish, it is basically raw clay with an applied finish-sealer that needs a different approach to cleaning. Ceramic tiles are fired in a kiln at temperatures around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit.

White vinegar is an aqueous solution of about 5% acetic acid which is a common constituent of most of the canning and pickling activities. As mentioned, the ingredients in white vinegar mainly comprise acetic acid. Some types of white vinegar can contain up to 20% acetic acid, but these are strictly for cleaning purposes (not on Mexican Tile floors) and not intended for human consumption.

Avoid using acids like bleach, white vinegar, and citrus soaps to remove stains since they can wear away at the sealer and damage the Mexican tile surface.
