    Either just the acids in the sauce, or if it was connected to power, it would undergo rather rapid electrolytic corrosion - "Reverse electroplating" in effect, where the metals are converted back to oxides and salts.

    It's the same effect as happens to the insides of a phone etc. that gets water in it and does not have the battery disconnected immediately.

    Just get a new cable. It does not have to be an Apple one, as long as it is from a supermarket or high street retailer etc.
