That’s what we’re told. It’s a little more complicated than that though. The vast majority of “foods” that contain vinegar are not corrosive to metal at all, but there are a few that are. While the main reason for this is that vinegar is so acidic, there are other reasons as well.
In our studies, we have found that vinegar is corrosive in two ways. First, when you mix vinegar with water it begins to change your skin color. A more extreme example is when you boil water and add vinegar to it. The acidity of the vinegar is what causes the red coloring on your skin, plus the boiling water is what causes the yellow coloring. When you add acid to boiled water, the acid will start to mix with the water and the boiling will continue to take place.
A second method of corrosiveness is the reduction of the acidity in the vinegar. When you add vinegar to water you’ll notice that the acidity of the solution is reduced by the effect of the boiling. This is why you can boil water and add vinegar. The boiling is what makes the vinegar work to reduce the acidity of your water, and the acidity will start to work to reduce the acidity of the vinegar.
When it comes to corrosiveness, what makes vinegar corrosive, I like to think of is how it works to reduce the acidity of the vinegar. First, it will act to dissolve a few of the acid of the vinegar. Then, when that solution is made more acidic by boiling, it will start to act to dissolve the remaining acid. This is why you get a nice orange-red solution when you boil a bunch of water and add vinegar.
If you look at the video, you can see that it’s a very corrosive acid. I’ve always thought that vinegar was corrosive because you can easily drop a glass of vinegar into a glass of water, and it will dissolve the glass. But in this video, it seems like the vinegar is doing something else. It seems to be acidifying the water in a way that actually makes it corrosive.
I had this very thought when I watched the video. When you add vinegar to water you get a nice white goo. What happens when you add vinegar to steel? I guess that makes sense if you think of vinegar as causing corrosion. But maybe you should just think of it as a chemical reaction in which you have the opportunity to get a reaction going.
Yeah, so the glass is probably getting into the steel which results in a chemical reaction where steel reacts with salt, or maybe some kind of metal oxide. Once the steel and steel’s reaction has gone away, the steel will react with the vinegar to form a layer of glass in the steel.
The problem is that steel is very reactive all of a sudden. It’s going to react with the vinegar to form a layer of glass. After that, it may actually reform the steel which may cause it to react with other metals. I can’t tell you for sure though.
I think the answer to that is, “it depends.” I think stainless steel is probably the most common type of steel. It is more resistant to corrosion than other types of metals. After all, stainless steel uses a lot of the same elements as other metals so it’s likely to react with vinegar. But once that reaction has gone away, steel will actually reform the vinegar and this can cause it to react with other metals.
I can tell you that stainless steel is more corrosive than any other type of steel. It’ll react with vinegar, but I can’t tell you for sure if stainless steel will corrode metals. I would also say that stainless steel is less corrosive to copper than other types of steel.
