Why Do My Seasoned Cast Iron Pans Feel Sticky?

Q: I recently re-seasoned my cast iron skillets and now they are sticky. How can I fix this?

Editor: I find that my pans feel a little sticky if I accidentally use too much oil when seasoning — more than the pan can absorb. Avoid this by wiping your pan with a dry paper towel after you're finished seasoning to sop up any excess oil.

Readers, any other advice?
