What is the best way to get tar out of clothes?

My SO started a new job and they frequently get tar and other petro based chemicals all over their clothes. His boss told him that his wife pretreats it all with lemon juice amd that cuts it. Dang it took FOREVER to pretreat just two pairs of jeans and two shirts with lemon juice and toothbrush to really get into the tar. There's got to be something faster!
