How do you get gear oil smell off stuff ?

So we all know gear oil smells like crap, but what i didnt know was how the smell stays on anything it touches.. How do you get gear oil smell out of clothing, or even your fingers lol ?

Wash your clothes in laundry detergent and take a good shower with soap, then soak you fingers in cider for about 20 mins.

Wear latex gloves before diving into the project

Time and soap. That's really all you can do.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Burn the clothes. Use latex gloves on your hands before getting it on you.

If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat!

use gojo to rub into stains and let sit for about 20 minutes. then rinse in a sink then wash in hot water ALONE with nothing else. If the stain/smell is still there, use SHOUT gel scrubber. thats how i get tranny fluid off my work clothes
