There’s no shame in feeling giddy when you’ve finally gotten grit and grime off your favorite kitchenware. That’s especially true when it comes to the cast iron, which sometimes feel like it comes with more rules than an HR manual. Maybe you don’t clean it while it’s still hot. Maybe you put it away slightly wet. In any case, when your cast iron needs some TLC, scrubbers and cleaners will work like magic to make your skillet good as new (or actually good as old—cast iron works better the more it’s used!).
