With cast-iron cookware, you do not need to use large amounts of oil. The lovely black non-stick polish on the surface is an indication of a properly seasoned skillet.
Cool the skillet completely before washing it in hot soapy water with a sponge using a regular dish washing liquid soap; season it with a thick coating of vegetable fat or oil.
