Antioxidants for disinfectants

I'm looking for a strong antioxidant with the following properties:
1. it must work at pH 3
2. it must be inert with phenols

The antioxidant should be add in the formulation of a
disinfectant/detergent
with phenols at pH 3. This disinfectant is normally used in 1% aqueous
solution for the disinfection of surgical instruments (instruments are
left
at least one night in the 1% solution). The tests we did leaving the
instruments into the 1% solution showed a browning of the instrument
surface. So we thought to resolve this problem using a strong
antioxidant.
Moreover the 1% solution should be  colourless and not become turbide.
Could you please tell me which antioxidants could be used in my
formulation? Or how could I minimize the browning of instruments
surface?
Thank you for your help!
