uh oh! I washed my BIL's cast iron pan (fully seasoned) too vigorously! Now there are some shiny spots -- what to do?

Cook some bacon in it. When it cools, wipe it down with some paper towel and salt. Rinse it thoroughly and burn it dry. It's okay to scrub cast iron but don't use scouring pads or anything like that.

Wipe it with a generous amount of olive oil and put in a warm oven for a while, then wipe clean with a towel.

You can't permanently hurt a cast iron pan unless you hit it with a big hammer. As the others say, just reseason it.

Well, if it was my pan that you did it to, you'd better pack an overnight bag and catch the first train smokin'! But if you're going to stay and 'fess up to it, well, just re-season it. Good luck!
