Default Re: Rust Question

From: http://www.castironcollector.com/electrolysis.php

"The process of electrolysis converts red rust (ferric oxide) to ferrous oxide, sometimes called black rust."

Ferrous oxide is a form of iron oxide that, unlike rust, is soft, black and is easily rinsed off. Just wash with Dawn, rinse, dry thoroughly and proceed with your manual seasoning regimen and you'll be fine.
