Mechanic Grease on Clothes Sept 2, 2010 13:55:55 GMT -5 Quote Select PostDeselect PostLink to PostBack to Top Post by skatters on Sept 2, 2010 13:55:55 GMT -5 My son is interning at a diesel mechanic shop, working on those BIG trucks. He comes home COVERED in grease. We have been washing his clothes in HOT water, with Tide, and oxy clean. But that just isn't cutting it. We are not drying the clothes, since my dryer is broke. Last night, his clothes came out sticky/tacky feeling. I hear that dawn dish soap works well to get grease out. But everything I have read says to spot treat the spots. Well, his uniforms are COVERED in grease. Literally. Do you think I could add a bit of dawn to the washer? Or would this be a bad bad mistake? Anyone have any other ideas?
