    I see the hour guy in the supply house, he's never dirty.

    Always wondered how he stayed so clean.

    The guys in the Yellow truck here in Dallas wear white uniform shirts. And of course they are clean and pressed even after a full day of work. Now, either they don't work, or they always have a clean shirt in reserve. Is that what y'all are see'n?

    One of my installers worked for a One Hour Co for a couple of years. He was telling me today that some days he would go thru four clean shirts in a day.

    I always keep reserve shirts and pants. After a few hours in a Texas attic, a change of clothing is a must. But my shirts are dark Gray, not White.

    I keep reserve shirts and still end up dirty head to toe. I am always suspicious of a clean tech at 4pm.

    You need a reserve shirt after a oil burner clean out. Black in winter, gray in summer. I always wondered why they made the poor guys work in long sleeve button down shirts and dress pants.

    My reserve shirt is turning my T shirt inside out.

    my boss is using that low sulfur bio and very few get as dirty as they used to. I did on Sunday on one that got the chimney base stuffed with soot.

    I think they keep a supply of clean shirts in the vehicles.

    True, but much like the little red truck guys, they don't get very dirty going around condemning equipment all day.

    At some of those companies, the "techs" don't really do any dirty work. If it is more than a simple quick repair, an "installer" is scheduled to come and complete it.
    The installers are not as clean.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
