Now, we know cast-iron skillet cookies are all the rage. We don’t blame them. Who doesn’t want a gooey chocolate chip cookie the size of their face? Well, most of the times your chocolate chip cookie may cook a little too long and you can find bits of molten chocolate stuck to your cast-iron pan. Stop. Do not clean with soap and water. I repeat. Do not clean with soap and water. Using soap and water to clean a cast-iron skillet can actually strip the pan of its thin oil coating. These natural cleaning hacks are putting a stop to this! Instead, pour 1 cup of coarse kosher salt into the hot skillet. Use a towel to wipe down and scrub the skillet. Rinse with very hot water. Return the skillet to the stove and evaporate leftover water with high heat. And just like that your cast-iron skillet is ready for tomorrow night’s giant cookie-er right, well we mean next month’s…

This natural cleaning hack is not only effective, but inexpensive and safe.
