LMAO @ OP. There are not that many ways to get kicked out of my kitchen but using soap on my wok or cast iron will get you exiled into the living room.

And don't season with EVOO -- it can oxidize or go rancid and it's pretty gross tasting. Stick to veggie oil, corn oil, bacon fat, Crisco, or sesame oil (for the wok).

Cleaning should just require some hot water and a nylon brush.

If your pan's unseasoned or been stripped for whatever reason, I highly recommend the flaxseed oil method described by Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen.

Could be worse. I've found mine in the dishwasher. The ONE time anybody ever loaded it and turned it on.

Or, thank m-i-l for all the good she did with the boys and just make an offhand "gee-wizz!" vent to a forum of third parties who, presumably, wont be upset that you did...

My biggest worry with cast iron is a filet mignon on Tuesday tasting like the salmon on Monday if I dont use soap and lots of lemon or salt.

I usually boil some water in my cast iron pans, scrape out what I can and wipe down with lard. Lard is much better than any veg oil for cast iron.

Honestly, if the pan is seasoned well enough, a quick wash with soap won't hurt it in the least. Repeated washings with soap and/or scrubbing is a bad idea. There is no reason to use soap anyway, but that is beside the point.

A lot of people either don't use Cast Iron, or use it wrong. It's not their fault they are ignorant. You should be happy that someone watched your kids and put up with the small inconvenience of having to reseason the pan.

Ugh, boyfriend almost got a divorce when I found my favorite cast iron pan dishwashed. Had to reseason it because it was relatively new.

Since then we moved to a home with a glass top stove, so I can't use my wonderful cast irons.
