For those of you with cast iron, how do you clean it? I was raised with using hot water and soap, and then drying it quickly on the stove so it won't rust. Since becoming an adult I've heard that you should never use soap on cast iron, that it ruins the skillet by removing the seasoning. But in my experience this has never been true. The cast iron skillets I have are from the 50s-60s, and are still in great shape.

I am like you. I wash mine with water and dish soap. Dry it. and I put oil on it stops it from rusting further. I have had one cast iron skillet for 33 years. Have always cleaned it that way. It still cooks good.
