Cast Iron Cookware...Cleaning Swap Meet Findings
Yesterday I picked up several cast iron skillets from our local swap meet that are very dirty. I know they can be cleaned and reseasoned but I was wondering if anyone knew the easiest way to get these cleaned up and ready for reseasoning. I've been told to use a lye wash but I'm not sure of the amount of lye to use. I prefer not using lye if I can help it. Can a steel wool soap pad work well enough without damaging the pans? Any advice is appreciated.
