DH works as a floorhand on an oil rig. This last hitch they used invert (kind of a mud made with desil) to help with the drilling. How do I clean his clothes?! No matter how many cycles I run I cant get that crap out. :(

 I heard a can of coke in the wash cleans greasy laundry.  Research that first though.

Try M30. You have to order it thru their website tho. I use it on grease stains on SO clothes and my grease spots from food on my workshirts. He is a mechanic and I'm a server and it works really well getting those stains out.

I use borax. And then run the washing machine with no clothes and the borax and it cleans out the drum.

Thank you for the suggestion. This is something I hadn't heard of.
