Default Cleaning cages with vinegar and water

Hello,
I apologise but I wasn't sure where to post this question. I'm sure it has also probably been asked before but I couldn't find it.
My question is, for those of you who use a white vinegar and water solution to clean your bird's cage, what ratio do you use? I've read both 1:2 and 1:3? I know diluted is better but can you dilute too much? For example, will more parts water make the vinegar less effective?
Thank you in advance.

I alway's used white vinegar undiluted for cleaning purposes. I am sure diluting would make less effective, and vinegar is inexpensive too...

I never dilute the vinegar when I use it for cleaning my birds' cages, toys and perches and I use it regularly.
Additionally, there is no need to rinse after using the vinegar.
