Jim, two possibilities come to mind: Either you're not a married man, or you have a wife who enjoys the scent of eau d' garage in the bathroom tub. I would get a load of crap from my spouse, just as I get each time I wash my garage coveralls. She's quick to remind me that laundry rooms (and bath rooms) are supposed to smell clean, ya know?

I use gas and whatever brand of laundry soap we have on the shelf, and hose it all down outside. Probably not as clean as you're able to get it, but it preserves my marriage.
