Cast Iron Hint : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

Did you know your not supposed to wash cast iron with soap and water? It causes rust.

Instead Just wipe it out. Storebought cast iron needs to be treated once. Maybe later I can dig out that process. seems like it was pretty simple to do.

I bet a lot of ya'll already knew that.
