Cleaning Cast Iron
How to clean rusty cast iron pans, and season them. I never use soap on my cast iron pans, either - I have two, and both were my grandparents'. I use a plastic square that came with stoneware baking stones, but I could use a credit card if I needed to, and just scrape them clean.
