I have one of those aluminum alloy ice cream scoops that is not supposed to go into the dishwasher. Well, you guessed it. A "helpful" guest cleaning up my kitchen put the scoop in the dishwasher, and I didn't catch it. Now, instead of being smooth, the scoop has sort of a dark, powdery coat on it that comes off on everything it touches.
Is there anything that can be done? Or do I just have to go buy a new one? Thanks.
