Muriatic acid spill on stainless steel sink and outdoor grill
I have a customer that bought a stainless steel out door grill and stainless sink. The rock men spilled muriatic acid on the stainless and it is discolored. Is there any help? I am installing an aluminum stair and rail system outdoors by the grill, they were wondering how to get rid of the discoloration.

The only reasonable way to get rid of this problem is to remove the stain by grinding it off. You can remove it by electropolishing it or treating it with some pretty hazardous chemistry.
