From my fiancé,
[cleaning stuff: rags with solvent, oil, grease, gun powder, ect]
buy new rags? they're not meant to last forever are they? lol
Get a Fiance that likes the smell.:rofl:
I agree with 'buy new rags'. Go to your favorite auto parts store & pick up a bag of rags, they are cheap and disposable. They also sell the blue paper towels that are more like cotton, they work great.
If you have any old clothes, cut them up & use them. Toss them when you are done.
Yeah man nothing like a little Hoppes on the underarms in the morning.:rofl:
And nothing draws Women shooters at the range faster than Hoppes Potion #9 after shave.
The problem is these products are petroleum based, so they are not miscible in water. You need to scrub them with something that allows the oil to come loose. I would suggest using the dish detergent, as it's meant to break-up oil prior to the wash cycle.
Uniform companies also deal with rags. They'll pick them up and wash them, drop off new ones for you to use.
Get you a bucket of very HOT very soapy water and take it outside. Put the rags in it to soak until it cools enough to hand wash them. Then rinse well and hang them up outside to dry and air out.
Or carry your lazy butt down to the coin operated laundry and wash them in the designated oily clothes machine and dry them in the big dryer.
Thanks guys, good suggestions.
I'm not (we're not) lazy by any definition of the word. Thanks.
There was 'sposed to be a smilie at the end of that one. I'll try to fix it.
There it went that time.
