Washing Magnalite Cookware

I have an oval Magnalite pot. We used it to drain some water from our sink and there was some kind of chemical that leaked into the pot. It was Drano or something of that nature. Can the pot be cleaned in some way to reuse it, or should I dispose of it?

I use to have magnalite pots & pans. They are hard, anodized aluminum.If you cook something with tomato stuff in it, (acidic), it should change the pan back to normal. You could also try scrubbing with some vinegar & see what it does, or try soaking with some vinegar & water. I'd keep checking to see how it was going. When ever aluminum gets dark spots, is usually from alkaline stuff coming in contact with the metal. Drano & the like is very alkaline. If it's strong enough & left long enough, it could damage the surface, but I'd try the acidic stuff for a bit. They are nice pans. Now with stainless, acidic stuff makes the surface darken.

I've had my magnalite pots 14 years now and they still look brand new. I use Cameo Stainless steel cleaner. It's about 97 cents at Walmart. It makes your sink shine awesome too.
