Ever used Noxon 7 Metal Polish on the inside of your pots?

In order to get some hardwater stains, etc. out of my 2 quart stainless steel pot, I used Noxon 7 Metal Polish to clean the inside.

After using Noxon, I thouroughly washed the pot with dishsoap and hot water. While drying the pot, I realized the inside had a coating on it (water beaded up), and I could still smell traces of the Noxon. I washed it again, dried it. Water still beads up.

My question is, is it typical to use Noxon 7 Metal Polish inside your pots and pans? And if so, does it not leave a smell or coating that will affect food?

I Googled the heck out of it, and could not get any straight answers or feedback. You personal experience with Noxon tainting or not tainting your food would be appreciated. I realize it CAN be used, but am worried about smells and residue in food.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!
I am home sicker than a dog with strep throat, so no celebrating for me tonight...

  1. That water beading is probably a coating to protect the stainless. I would not cook with it while the water is beading. Try rubbing alcohol.
