I had one of those chain mail scrubbers. Did a pretty good job...until it fell in the sink drain and I hit the disposal switch. I was picking the pieces out for 20 minutes!My sister got me one of those chain mail things for gunk removal, it works pretty well, no noticeable breakdown in seasoning, but for the most part I give it a hot rinse when I’m done while the pans still warm and wipe.
I picked up some avocado oil spray at Trader Joe’s so, I have taken to a very quick spritz and rub it down. So far no complaints
