Sorry, side tracked.... ANYWAY. Yeah, Dawn works wonders. I've washed my hair with it too, it pulls it right out, then just run some conditioner through it, or you hair will feel like a cacti. :] just my two cents.

For real nasty yuck, I'll wash my hands with ATF 1st, then hit the soap. The ATF will cut thru some nasty stuff, like the goo from an exploded axle boot, with ease.

I used to sell Gyro's and that grease is tough. Dawn seemed to do the best on jeans and such that had Gyro grease on them.
Like Tom I often use ATF, WD40, PB Blaster, etc. especially for thick stuff on my hands, etc. Then ZEP's Cherry Bomb. But for a lot of stuff Dawn can't be beat.

i'm just going to come out and say it - i use the rubber/nitrile/latex gloves. i'm sorry to let you down. my dad won't touch them. i get made fun of. oh well, easy clean up works for me.
you guys don't use the gritty soaps, i like those?

so what do you use on your rags, gloves, shirts and pants in the washing machine????
the cleaning service companies who do it for the professional shops can get them clean,. but i'll be damned if i can. i can get the grease out, but i can't get them clean, spotless.

I use almost any dishwashing detergent and a red scotch brite pad. The pad isnt hard on the skin, and gets everything out excpet fingernails.
Sadly i have lost some masculinity and started wearing latex gloves when working on the car.
Work clothes, they are supposed to get dirty. i use taorn jeans to rok on the car.
For stains on other clothes, let the detergant pre-soak, then use a stiff dish brush (synthetic) and rub it in.

For both topics actually.
it works great for ripping off all that grease and crap (not to mention some
skin if you're not careful )
And it eats grease really well in the wash.
I just put some on my greasy clothes, scrub it in, and let it sit for a little while
before throwing it in the wash with the rest of the clothes.
Or, if you really want to be super OCD about it, you can just hand wash your
work clothes with your choice of chemicals.
I do sometimes when there is a really stubborn stain.
PS: Just don't let your wife/significant other catch you squirting the pumice
hand cleaner in the laundry, they usually freak out if you haven't explained to
them what its for.
