I wouldn t use vinegar as it can affect the final color of the wood if it soaks in. Just mix a gallon of water with a quarter cup of bleach in a cheap pressure sprayer and you ll be fine. Just make sure the wood gets plenty of airflow and don t smother it with a tarp or something.

^^^^^^^ This.

No cover needed at all inside a garage, it would just shed off water if outside, doesn’t need to touch, just be over, like 12” over if possible. Think airflow, at this stage that is what is helping to dry. Off the ground with cinder blacks and the 2x material crossways to stack on is good. Make the stack with stickers between rows, and boards not touching their neighbors (think picnic table spacing or wider). You haven’t hurt anything yet, just more space, more airflow needed.
