I just splashed some (not completely clean) engine oil on my riding pants. What should I use to get it off? I have gasoline, I have kerosene, I don't have paint thinner, but I can easily get some.
They aren't leather; they're that thick kind of stitching, by Nitro.

Try dish washing detergent,it'll break down the oil, and rinse.After the D/D use a laundry pre treater and wash normaly.
DO NOT use gas or kero as it may damage the fibers if they are synthetic,at best you'd be trading a dark stain for a lighter but bigger one.

Do not put gas on your pants. You will just have a big gas stain to get out.
I have no idea why but that advice made me laugh

Yeah, why take a bath, either? You'll just get dirty again.
HAHAHAA, yeah being "that stinky guy" is what I want to do.

I agree with the dish soap idea, I alway's use dish soap to clean my hands after I end up filthy from wrenchin. I have never tried it personally but it sounds like a good idea.
