Everyday Care for Carbon Steel
Don't Wash With Soap
If a quick wipe doesn’t clean your pan, wash with a little water and a non-abrasive scrubber. Dish soap and abrasive tools will strip the seasoning.
Do Not Put in Dishwasher
It’ll strip your seasoning layers, and you’ll have to start seasoning your pan again from scratch.
Make sure your pan is completely dry before you put it away. Heating it for a few minutes on your stovetop will remove any remaining moisture.
Keep It Protected
If you used water to clean your pan, add a little more seasoning agent to the warmed pan after fully drying. Rub it into the cooking surface, wipe off excess (like you did when first seasoning), and store.
