My brother, Daniel (some of still call him Dink), works in a fried chicken establishment which serves, along with fried chicken, things like coleslaw and breakfast sandwiches. In this restaurant, Dink has been promoted to a cook and in their kitchen, they have four deep fryers in addition to ovens and stovetops, etc. Thus when he works, he’s basically in a room full of oil all day. As you would expect, his clothes become dirty and mainly greasy in a very short amount of time.
Today, he soaked three of his outfits (three pairs of pants, three shirts, three pairs of underwear) in a cooler of water with baking soda and vinegar. After he pulled the clothes out, the liquid wasn’t exactly recognizable as water as we generally know it. It was more like water that you would expect from the Amazon.
At least, hopefully, his clothes will be clean now!
