Sarah, when you're ready to sand it, have your hubby do it--you--and baby--shouldn't breath that stuff .

You shouldn't breathe in any sort of fine particulates. It's not awful for you (don't worry--I'm so sorry if I scared you) but it's just not a good thing either. I know it's mainly in the first trimester that they say to avoid fumes and particulates as much as possible, but better safe than sorry.

Once it's properly seasoned it's ok to use soap and hot water on it. I do it all the time and my skillets are black and shiny. I do use them an awful lot, so they hardly ever need to be reseasoned.

The key is making sure you DRY the skillet THOROUGHLY.

My mother put hers in the dishwasher once in a while and hers (almost 50 years old now) are like teflon.

That is what I do, and I never reseason mine. I let the cooking fats do that job for me.

Make sure you use a oil/grease in your skillet when cooking, if you are going to wash it with soap.

If you don't, you will find you will have problems with rusting/sticking.

Yes. Quite true. Although i do not use oil or grease when cooking foods that throw off fat.

that's probably why my seasoning wears off. i use as little fat or oil in my cooking as possible. i use it like non-stick cookware, and then scrub it fairly well with soap and water, then onto a burner to completely dry.
