With the Environmental Public Health (EPH) Amendment Bill coming into force on 1 April 2014, all basic cleaning firms in Singapore, even if these services kind only aspect of their overall business enterprise, will have to be licensed before 1 September 2014. I have cast iron skillets, a griddle, ad meat press, and covered saucepan which I am presently applying to cook with each and every day given that our electric stove went out on us, and it’s good! We shield the environment by using only cleaning solutions that are environmentally responsible or sustainable. I have bought my cast iron cookware from garage sales and second hand shops, and it really is like you stated, just a tiny elbow grease and some Crisco, and you have a skillet as superior as new.
I wash my cast iron cookware in warm soapy water, dry it thoroughly with paper towels and give it a light coating of Crisco soon after every use. We not too long ago lost our old Boxer dog 1 of her claims to fame was that more than the 14 years we had her she BROKE five (yes, 5) cast iron skillets. Caring for old rusty skillets or any cast iron cookware can be a small time consuming but in the end it is well worth the time.
