How do you clean a cast iron skillet?

Pretty much same as all else. Wash with only a brush and hot water (while the pan is still hot) to get residue out.
Except when I have fried something that will leave a taste, like fat fish (salmon, herring or similar). Then I also use dish-washing liquid along with the brush.
Dry off on the stove after cleaning with water.
The thing to remember is that cast iron will contain small hollows which should contain fat. Otherwise everything will just burn. Feel with a finger if it "feels" fat. Otherwise pour on some cooking oil and let it simmer in low heat for a while. Swipe off excess with a paper towel.
