Mind if I ask a few questions?

What are "SS scrubs"?

Why do you avoid "brushes"?

Thank you.
SS Scrubs = scrubbing with stainless still scrubbers from the dishwashing section.

Brushes add more lines that I have to season over, I'd rather work a little harder and not have more lines to hide. Just my personal preference.

Not sure what is meant by lines, but any stainless steel brush used should not be so stiff that it marks the iron.

Mine did, now I simply avoid them. It's just my preference.

+1, and don't get too aggressive with it. It doesn't take much effort to get the little bit that is left.

I'll just keep being lazy and let the lye do the work. I have about 25 pieces in there so I have plenty to work on while I wait.
