So I've had grease on my arm for 2 days now, and after showering, scrubbing it with a hand cloth and hand soap, then a cloth with dish soap, and going swimming for 2 hours, its still there. Any tips on getting it off?

Get soap with a sand base in it.

You could try an equal mix of sand and detergent. Good, cheap and effective. If that fails you could also try a little petrol on an old rag and rub away.

My shop has some tan colour stuff, and we don't have a bristle brush to scrub with, and it still gets everything off no problem.

i need to get me some of that, it sucks only having handsoap at the shop it only gets some of the grease off my hands. it sucks going out for dinner or something after and my hands are still like black and other people are like wtf wash your hands or this guy is dirty lol

Yeah, I go out to dinner with dirty shop clothes sometimes Haha.

All my friends understand that I'm a tech, so they don't care.

Those are the 2 products that I use after working in the garage. Scouring pads come in handy too when washing up.
