Pitting and Black Residue on Vintage Magnalite Cookware?

This magnalite has been in the family for at least 50 years. I do not put it in the dishwasher. I use hot water, Dawn and a ChoreBoy when needed. It is pitted. When I dry the inside of any piece, a black residue is left on the drying towel. Someone told me recently that this is unsafe. What is this black residue?

I believe you can clean your cookware with Barkeepers Friend but here is a link that tells how to clean and keep it safe to use.

You will need cream of tartar and an acid like vinegar or lemon juice to clean the cookware. Please refer to this article:www.everydaycheapskate.com/.../

It's probably aluminum or aluminum-based cookware. I've had really nice non-stick fry pans that were great except for a part of the handle that always leached a dark substance.

After much thought, I came to the conclusion that it was made of aluminum and continually oxidized onto anything that touched it. If your cookware is leaching a dark substance and it has sentimental value you could use it for decorative purposes only.

All I am finding regarding the 'black residue' is that this happens when you lean acidic sauces and such in the pans too long. Here is a link to a very informative article on the cookware:
