    Are your pants permanently grease stained?

    From picking up your bike, carrying it in and out of the house, lifting it onto bike racks, moving it to other spots within the house, up and down stairs. And also messing around with all the greasy tools, spare parts, tyres, bike racks, etc. I canít keep my clothes clean. Can you?

    i always carry my bike on the non-drive side. my only problem is when i'm cleaning it. i have been able to get any stains out, though.

    Almost all of my clothes are black. The grease helps keep them that way

    one thing that helps get grease out is butter. i know it
    sounds messed up, but non-salted butter. just rub it into
    the grease stain, get the area well coated and wash as
    usual. i've tried this before and it doesn't work 100%, but
    it helps alot, it gets almost all of the grease away. this
    is because the grease bonds with the butter fat which is
    for some reason easier to wash away than the grease itself.

    WARNING: i have tried this only on blue jeans and it worked
    fine. a friend of mine tried it on a light grey t-shirt and said
    the grease was gone, but a very light stain from the butter
    remained.

    i have a lot of grease stains on my pants. lestoil works wonders to get the stains out. use the lestoil before you wash them, because it smells kind of funky.

    one day, as i was just leaving my place, i noticed a quarter sized black stain on my knee. i used some dishsoap, and it came right out.

    google "laundry grease" and you'll come up with a ton of suggestions. coke, rubbing alcohol, etc. surprisingly, dishsoap is also recommended. i can also obviously vouch for it. it smells nice, too. i didn't even wash my jeans after. just rubbed in a small drop of dishsoap, rubbed for a second, and tried to get as much of the soap off as i could with a wet rag. the stain was gone and i could wear my jeans for another week because they had a hint of something good smelling.

    no, mostly because they're black, or cuz i don't have a reason to carry my bike much and my pants are always rolled up.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    Um, if you're not filthy almost all of the time, then you're not doing it right.

    I only ride in one pair of jeans, and one pair of dickies, that way I'm not ruining all my clothes.

    Goddamned right. What else can I ride for hours at a time without being asked "Are you done yet?" S'aight though all my clothes are black anyways. I figure the grease just makes them a little slicker for when I hit the pavement.

    Hehe, if *someone* is asking "Are you done yet?" perhaps you aren't doing it right? /grin

    I'll leave that one alone, but it seems unnatural somehow.
