Cleaning T Fal

I buy Carlisle non stick skillets at the restaurant supply store. They last about 3-4 years before either the coating starts coming off, or stuff starts sticking. Metal utensils never touch them, they never go into a dishwasher. Someone told me that not using soap will make them last much longer. True? I just use whatever liquid dish soap is on sale and a soft sponge to wash. I never use soap on my cast iron, should I not use it on T Fal? Thank you.

I've got some T Fal pieces that are 30 years old and they go in the DW and I use metal utensils (carefully) with them. The handle broke off one before the non-stick surface came off.
But something tells me they were probably made better back then.
