What's special about black mold? Or does it work on other colors of  
mold, too?

For cleaning, use the cheapest vinegar you can find. No reason to use  
the good stuff. Most modern vinegar is standardized to a 5% solution.   
The cheapest distilled vinegar is actually made from petroleum. Sure  
surprised me when I heard that, but look at the label. Not really what  
I want to put on my salad!

For some more on vinegar, both today and in period:

Another medieval sour juice that you may have heard of is verjuice,  
usually made from unripe grapes or crabapples.
