    For charity, I’d recommend your local food pantry. Ours has been inundated, and I bet yours has, too.Report

    Actually, the chainmail washcloth IS for cleaning. The metal is softer than the iron, so as long as you aren’t scrubbing with significant pressure, it won’t hurt the surface or seasoning, but it will knock the burned on crap loose.Report

      The joke I was going for was the distinction between washing and cleaning for cast iron pans.

      You can *CLEAN* a cast iron pan. From time to time.

      NEVER wash one.Report

        Ah, when you said “get the rust off”, I thought you had the wrong idea. It gets the ‘crust’ off.Report

        yep. When my wife and I were moving out of our apartment into our first house the landlords came over to “helpfully” clean. The husband turned on the self clean function of the oven, not realizing my well seasoned cast iron was inside. That stuff came out factory new, and I’ve been re-seasoning since.

        No washing involved, but boy was it CLEAN!Report

    If you are looking for music to share with your loved ones (or to tell your loved ones to get you), my advice is always something like “Jethro Tull’s Thick as a Brick never gets old!” but that advice might not be appropriate for everybody.

    As such, here is Chris’s twitter thread with all of the music he enjoyed this year. Read the whole thing. He touches on pretty much every genre you’d be tempted by.
