LB is correct. You clean a cast-iron by heating it up and scraping off the caked on nonsense. You season it by coating the cooking surface in salt and heating it up and scraping off the caked on nonsense. You do not wash it, ever. If you wash a cast-iron (or a non-stick, for that matter), then you are most assuredly an asshole. You only need to season it after the initial seasoning if you've done something stupid, like wash it.

For the record, you clean a non-stick by wiping it out with a paper towel. Unless you used it wrong and it's too dirty for that, because you're apparently an asshole.

Which is why a non-stick, or a cast-iron, is a specialized tool and not for everyday use.
