You do not need to wash your frying pan every time you cook. The best way is to wipe thoroughly with kitchen towels after use (except for sauté, hard boiled). However if you do not wash them for too long, oil stain will make your pan sticky.
Flour mixed water / rice washed water

If you do not feel that your pan is clean, you can also try using baking powder or fruit cleanser.
