Stainless steel blackening relief




We have blackened stainless steel food bowls with bichromate sodium and we need to relieve the blackening from the inner surface with chemical solution.
Would someone know this solution?

Hello, Amr. I think that was a very bad idea. I do not think you should sell a bowl for food service that was blackened with sodium dichromate because hexavalent chromate is a carcinogen.
