    I think the cheapest solution is a new pair of pants & tshirt /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just haul em down to your local laundromat, add lot's of tide, biz, something like that. When the spin cycle is complete, grab your clothe's and haul ass. I've found that gear oil like's to gather on the lid of the washer. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Tide works best. Don't use more than the directions say in one load, too much detergent isn't better. Fill the washer with warm (NOT hot) water, put clothes in, let it run a couple minutes to get everything soaked, then stop the cycle for 1/2 hr. Restart when time's up, and run a second rinse to ensure soap and grunge is gone.

    My wife uses Fels Naptha soap for grease and oil stains. Glycerin gets out ink, and Hydrogen peroxide gets out protien stains like blood and grass and ..other stuff /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Prewash the spots with that stuff then throw it in the wash with yer clothes and they should come out clean! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
