Washed clothes with gasoline on them. Put into dryer now washer and dryer smell like gasoline. How do I get it out?
To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby
oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with
normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of
clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going
to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby
oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause
further damage to your clothing.
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous
portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about
five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again
remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill
up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash
with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle
begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your
gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these
clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your
clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second
time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas
remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the
smell is gone.
