Any ideas how to clean my dirty Jeep repair shirts

I've destroyed probably 5 undershirts and a sweatshirt, which I've now delegated to be my "jeep repair shirts". I'd still like to get them somewhat cleaner. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow to show the dirtyness, it's pretty unbelievable.

Still no lift, and almost no paint on the hood

I gave up on trying to clean mine. I just bought a couple packs of plain white T's for designated garage shirts. They kinda look tye-dye now, only without colors. Just black and brown

Yeah, if I could sell t-shirts that are covered in gear oil, I'd never work another a day in my life.

Use "Goop" hand cleaner on them. I have gotten wheel bearing grease out of white t-shirts with it.

Goop them up before you wash, hand scrub them a bit to make sure it gets everywhere, then a cup of simple green in the wash water.
THEN most importantly another wash with just simple green then another with regular clothes soap of your choice..

Why would you want to do that? I've been using the same grungy shirt for 10 years without washing. Who cares what is looks and smells like when you are working on the rig. Besides, it has personality. My wife hates it though!

Yup

It was an expensive lesson. She went out and bought all new stuff and not the cheap kind (not the good kind either ).
Now I know better and there is the good kind back again
