Chlorine  (like that in salt) can eat thru and destroy the thin protective layer of passivation that protects stainless steel from corrosion. If chlorine gets on your stainless, clean it with fresh water immediately. Chlorine is to stainless, like cancer is to the human body.

Never use muriatic acid to clean tile or stone grout around a stainless steel refrigerator or appliance. The fumes are enough to permanently discolor the stainless. Always remember - it's stain-less - not stain-proof.
