Re: Cleaning cast iron
Don't use soap, just water. I normally will brush it out with a some water (I have a brush I keep just for this purpose). If it's really stuck on there, I put some water in the pan and bring it to a boil then brush it off. Afterward I wipe it down with some coconut oil, palm oil or lard (sometimes I have to heat the pan a bit to ensure it's melted).
