I used some kind of my wifes funky vinegar and it worked ok. (be warned it cleaned very well there is no water or animals in my tank yet.)

I've used apple cider vinegar a couple of times to clean my filter for my 10 gallon nano. I've always made sure to rinse off everything really well a few times before adding back to the tank though. That would be my advice. Just make sure you rinse off all the vinegar and wipe down the parts good and you should be absolutely fine.
