How to season and maintain an iron skillet

A lot of the new ironware comes preseasoned, but if you buy or inherit an old piece you need to know how to season it.  Just wash it with warm, soapy water, rinse, and dry well.  I like to set it on a hot burner til really dry.  Rub it all over, inside and out with Crisco or vegetable oil.  Bake at 375 for 1 hour. 
To maintain it, always wash it out and dry it on a hot burner.  Wipe down with vegetable oil or Crisco.  If you get some terrible gunk that doesn't easily wash off, scrub the pan with Crisco and salt.
