However since all the rest of your gear will be screwed this is only relevant as a correction to misinformation posted on the internet!
Interesting, I did not know that. However, many "Dyneema slings" are actually a hybrid nylon/ Dyneema sling. According to Metolius, Dyneema slings are often braided with nylon fibers to make the sling more supple so they are easier to sew. The only pure Dyneema sling that I know of is the new Petzl dogbones. There may be others, but my point is most slings have nylon in them somewhere which would be tanked by exposure to acid.
