Care of Cast Iron Cookware

Cast iron ware is often supposed to be difficult to keep clean. A great many of the difficulties coiild be removed by giving new articles a preliminary treatment.

New cast iron ware, which is to be used for cooking, should be coated on the inside with tallow and allowed to stand for a few days, then heated until the fat melts, and washed in hot water and washing soda. Rinse in hot water and wipe dry, rubbing very hard.

After this it is only necessary to fill the article with water after using and let it stand until ready to wash. It should be washed with hot soapy water, outside and inside, rinsed, and thoroughly dried.

Iron that is put away and not used for a time should be coated with paraffin to prevent rust.
