Welp I learned my lesson to not pour room temp oil on a cast iron pan that's been sitting on high for 20 minutes with nothing in the pan.

This may (did) happen before, but I just bought it 2 months ago so there's no rust or anything (Lodge brand if it matters). Can I just scrape with a steel scrubber and then re season it with corn oil at 450 degrees for maybe 3 or 4 repetitions, and have my good old pan back?

Again, this happened before, and even without reseasoning it still made fried eggs with a complete nonstick cook.

This is my first post, thanks! Seems to be a cool forum.
