Gearhead laundry tips?
I had to make a rushed trip straight from the office to help someone move a car. I ended up under it pulling the driveshaft out, and somehow managed to get 80w90 gear oil and some other nasty grease on my new pants. Is there anything that will get this stuff out or should I just cut these up for rags?

Simple Green.

Waterless hand cleaner. The yellow stuff not the gritty stuff.
It will leave a residue, but a regular wash will get it out.

Simple green will work but is harsh on the fabric.

If it has not set, you can use Gojo (or some other non-abraisive hand cleaner like JG mentioned). I tried that once and was surprised at how well it lifted right out of a white t-shirt. A few days later, I tried it again but a few days apparently is enough for stains to set.

Ok cool, I will try the hand cleaner and if that doesn't work I'll go get some Simple Green. It has had time to set so I am probably SOL but it's worth a try. Thanks.
