Gas Smell In Garage

I spilled a half gallon of gasoline in the garage. I put kitty litter on it to absorb the fluid and then swept it up. How do I get the smell out of it?

Hello Susan,

Talk about a small world ... I was born in Cedar Rapids! The following is a link to a website that says to use either liquid detergent or the other powedered laundry type ... have never tried either ... but you never know --- might just do the trick! And remember: - Keep gasoline in small quantities only and in a proper, tightly sealed container labeled "gasoline." Never store gasoline in a garage with an appliance that contains a pilot light.
