I too scrub my cast iron skillets, but never with soap, just hot water and a SCRUBBLE stainless steel scrubber. Then I dry it thoroughly with paper towels, apply a light coat of bacon juice to the interior surfaces, and put it on a hot burner with the vent fan on until it quits smoking.

Absolutely! CharlieD is dead on with that advice. Also, wipe a thin coating of oil on the cooking surface before putting away. Wipe the excess oil out wit a paper towel.

When cooking with cast iron, it's best to pre-heat the pan before adding any oil. This will make the pan even more stick-free.
