Caring for cast iron

nmurawsk | Dec 20, 2009 01:21 PM

How does everyone care for their cast iron pots and pans? I've just received a skillet as a gift and so far have only used it a couple of times for cooking bacon. I know most say not to clean it with soap and water but to just wipe it down with a cloth. But, do I keep a cloth specifically for cleaning the cast iron since it turns brown? Using paper towels leaves bits of paper reside in the pan. Any tips and suggestions appreciated! TIA
