Yes, DO NOT use steel wool - it will scrub off the carbon base. Use a stiff brush with plastic bristles. Water is OK to use, soap is not. Lodge is good quality, but honestly, when it comes to cast iron pans, unless they are real thin, cast iron is cast iron.

I've always used salt to scrub heavy residue. The skillet I use is probably about 80 years old and is still great.
