The job I’ve been doing lately involves cleaning up transmissions and that involves grinding corrosion off with air metal brush tools / spraying things off with carb cleaner and then painting them.

so when I’m doing things like pulling the torque converter out there’s a good chance I end up kneeling in transmission fluid from either taking it out or putting in back in so I was wondering if there is a good laundry product or stain remover for removing the fluid stains from jeans or t-shirts

Engines as well. Mostly engines and some transmissions. So whatever product that can be recommended as a laundry stain fighter would be helpful

Dare I admit it? All my "daily" clothes are stained, and have been for the last 65 years! That's been my lifestyle, working on things. I never have to search for a rag to wipe my hands on, I wear them.

PS: I think my wife relies on that Oxyclean stuff...

I once had ball point pen leak onto my only dress shirt. I thought what the heck, it's ruined any way; sprayed it with Berryman B-12 Chemtool.

However, I can't imaging trying to stay upright after spraying a huge, red stain and breathing that large amount of Chemtool.

Luckily every shop I worked in provided and washed our uniforms weekly. My wife did not appreciate grease in her machine!!
I never understood how some significant others put up with allowing the cleaning engine parts in their dishwashers.

Thanks for the tip. You guys had a show out of Canada some years ago called the red Greene show that Myself and my other co-US friends really loved . did you ever happen to catch that show? Red would often say if the women don’t find you handsome at least let them find you handy. And they were always talking about the handyman secret weapon duck tape of course. hilarious show that I miss and they were always talking about the handyman secret weapon duck tape of course hilarious show I miss it.
