Why does it say "You never use le and les to replace inanimate objects." When other sources say that spanish does not distinguish between inanimacy.

Hello Daniel

We will remove this bit of information from the lesson because, although, more commonly used to refer to people or animals, "le/les" can also refer to inanimate objects, for example "Le añadí sal a la comida" (I added salt to the food), acting also as an indirect object. 

Thanks for reporting this and sorry about the confussion.
