Gray Powdery Residue on Cookware...why?
We have had a Miele dishwasher for about a year and a half now, using Cascade liquid gel for detergent. During this time, we have noticed almost all of our pots, pans, pie plates, and even our metal garlic press have developed a whiteish gray finish on the outside, and some of them when wiped will actually release a grey/black residue.
I am sure this isn't healthy, and we will need to throw out these items. But does anyone know why they are reacting this way? I have read very little about aluminum based products reacting this way...is that whats going on here? I guess I am just even more curious as to why its now just happening with the Miele dishwasher.
