Why can't I wash stainless steel tableware with alkaline detergent?
Liaoning Jinchu reminds you not to use alkaline detergent to wash stainless steel tableware. Alkaline detergent will chemically react with stainless steel to dissolve toxic metal elements.
Stainless steel is made of iron-chromium alloy mixed with other trace elements. If used improperly, the trace metal elements in stainless steel will slowly accumulate in the human body, which is not good for health. Therefore, do not use strong alkaline or strong oxidizing chemicals, such as soda, bleaching powder, etc. for washing. These substances are electrolytes and will react chemically with stainless steel. At the same time, stainless steel tableware should not hold salt, soy sauce, vegetable soup, etc. for a long time. These foods contain many electrolytes. Stainless steel will chemically react with these electrolytes to dissolve toxic metal elements.
