    T-Shirts

    A.C. Moore has T-Shirts on sale, 2 for $5.00.
    They will not last forever but I usually get a summer out of a few. I am really tough on clothes during the summer when working outside and usually pick up a few every year. Make pretty good rags after you're done wearing them. I'm an easy keeper.

    Do the backs wear out from rubbing on the lawn chair while you supervise?

    So is what you're saying you can't make shop rags fast enough? We can all send you some T-shirts AND if you're really strapped, some boxers and briefs.

    Will Giz take old drawers with skid marks for shop rags?

    Old drawers do not make good shop rags; you guys know that; nor do old sweat socks. In fact, I don't like old T shirts...they're too slick. I much prefer the paper towels (blush).

    I probably have 200 car show T shirts that we have accumulated over the last 15 or 20 years; in fact Sharn Jean is making a T shirt quilt from some of them, so I have a 30 gallon garbage bag full of T shirt remnants. Hate to throw them away, but don't use them much, unless maybe I'm painting.

    If you make garage sales, be on the lookout for old towels. Sometimes you can buy a wagon load of old towels, really cheap, and that's what I use on the old cars.

    For rags you really want all cotton, no polyester.

    Even as a child, nothing was ever thrown out. All of dad's old cotton t-shirts/undershirts were added to the shop rag box. I remember sitting around when the box was full, tearing everything into strips/squares. Used for checking oil and wiping the dipstick, wiping hands, etc., and it was amazing how dirty they would look, before they didn't get most of the grease off of your hands. Only then were they thrown away! They didn't have as much lint on them as paper towels or "shop towels". The first time I used a paper towel to wipe a dipstick, I just knew I was going to have problems from teeny tiny pieces of lint, that my then teenage eyes could notice! Now, I don't think a truck can go down the road, without a roll of shop towels in it!
