So...last night I had my stone in the sink as I was going to be rinsing with & scrubbing with the metal brush that you can buy for it. However, before I was able to do my brother (who is currently staying with me) started to wash his plate in the sink & dumped some soapy water onto the stone. I quickly rinsed/flushed the stone with water for a good 5-10 minutes, scrubbed with the steel brush & rinsed again. Am I going to be okay here or is this thing going to be toast? I think I'll stop trying to "clean" things from here on out and just burn stuff off of it. Thanks guys.
