Chainmail Scrubber for Cast Iron
My son bought me a chainmail scrubber for cleaning my cast iron when it needs a heavy cleaning. Basically, you clean your cast iron with hot water and a "chainmail" pad. Afterwards I dry the skillet, oil it lightly then stick it in a 200 degree oven for 30 minutes. In the past I had been told that water should never be used on cast iron. However, this chainmail pad seems to work well. Any thoughts as to whether or not I am doing any harm?
