HOW TO CLEAN YOUR CARBON STEEL WOK OR PAN
To clean, wash with hot water, a soft sponge, and dry completely on the stove or with a dishtowel. Do not use soap ( a small amount is okay when the pan is very greasy). Remember! Carbon steel can warp, so never walk away from an empty pan on the stove or put a hot pan/wok under cold water.
When clean, the surface of the pan/wok should feel silky. If there are any remaining food bits or sticky spots, take a little salt mixed with oil and a soft sponge, lightly scrub. Rinse 2-3x to remove ALL salt residue. Dry.
