Cast Iron Cleaning Hack!

      We absolutely love cooking with our cast iron skillet. We use it almost every night. Until I learned about this cleaning hack I HATED having to clean the skillet. If you don’t know this trick already you will be extremely thankful to learn it. Your cast iron skillet will be clean and ready for action in no time.

        After cooking prime rib in our skillet, it always leaves lots of grease, crusty residue and is hard to clean. All you need is four household items to get your skillet back to cooking in no time.


  • Olive oil

  • Coarse sea salt

  • Water

  • Paper towels


  • Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into your skillet.

  • Sprinkle sea salt on top of oil in pan.

  • Use paper towel to rub the oil and sea salt together on the pan to de-crust the cooking residue off. The olive oil and salt almost act like a face wash exfoliant.

  • If you need to use a second paper towel you can to continue to scrub pan until all residue is no longer stuck on the pan.

  • Put pan under hot water in sink to clean off all of the excess gunk.

  • Use paper towel to dry the pan off and it is as good as new!
