Thanks for all the responses
No it won't. Dry it completely and wipe it with a very thin coat of oil if you want to.

A little soap is fine if the pan is seasoned.

Make sure you dry it completely, though.

I use whatever means necessary to clean my cast iron -- I am as aggressive as I need to be to clean it --

I can see you and shards of steel wool everywhere!

Like I have said before, my mother used to put hers in the dishwasher once in a while and they are COVETABLE pieces still today.

Shards of steel wool?? An SOS pad on very rare occasions for something stubborn works wonders....No, it doesn't hurt a thing on a well seasoned piece....

Agreed. Just to be sure, I usually wipe a bit of oil on it and then put it on a high flame until it starts to smoke.

I use soap, a nylon scrubbie if I need it, and after it is clean, I dry it on a burner and rub a teeny bit of oil on it while it is still hot.

I scrape my CI with a short griddle spatula...works fine. Doesn't seem to hurt the griddle, so I figured it'd be OK.
