Shelf Life of Vodka/Vinegar/RODI (DIY NoPox)

500 mls Vinegar, 375 mls Vodka (40%) and 125 mls of RO/DI water mixed into one container.

What can be expected for a shelf life before deterioration and increased dosing to get the same organic carbon response is needed?

If this mixture is in a tightly sealed comtainer, there shouldn’t be any evaporation. You are not likely to have bacterial growth in this mixture either. So, this mixture should last forever.
