    Laundering shop rags.

    I lost my connection at the local automotive shop to get my rags cleaned. Anyone know of a good way to get them clean using domestic detergents and such?

    Cintas was the answer. When I worked at a shop, and we had Cintas, they would use a process of steaming and of some kind of industrial detergent. I asked about setting up an account with them, and he said I'd have to be using a lot of rags....

    I'll try the borax. I can pick that up in a grocery store? Any special process I should follow?

    The borax worked pretty good carlos. The minute I put the rags in there, the water turned murkie brown. I'm sure had I decided to ruin one of the chinese laundry mats here I could have gotten them pretty clean. That'll be my next mission.
