White residue on vintage aluminum? cookware.........

Displaced California Foodie | Dec 30, 200601:40 PM     7

I am using one of my grandmother's "majestic cookware" pots- it may be aluminum? I use it to boil water for hard boiled eggs. Every time I use it a white residue appears in the pot. I inadvertently left water in it all nite and there is a lot of this white residue?
Does anyone know what this is? Should I throw the pot away? It is not from the eggs...it is lumpy like it is seeping/budding out from the pot itself....
