Flagstone is a common choice when constructing walkways, patios and even some indoor areas. The flagstone provides a rustic, natural look that is heavily durable to wear and tear. To keep the flagstone looking its best, clean with a solution that is safe for the flagstone and effective in keeping the stone clean and free of build-up. Vinegar works well in this situation, when diluted properly, as it disinfects plus deodorises without use of harsh chemicals.
