I just thought I'd share. Enjoy!
Update: I just learned that I've been cleaning my cast iron skillets the wrong way. I'd been blasting them with steel wool SOS pads to get the things good and clean. Bad move. Here's how you do it:
Caring for cast iron is easier than you think. It’s all about keeping that seasoning intact. There are basically three steps: washing, drying, and coating with oil. Because detergents can degrade the seasoning, I simply wash my skillet out with hot water and a sponge or a natural- or nylon-bristle brush—never a scouring pad and never, ever in the dishwasher. If food sticks, a soak in hot water usually does the trick.
