I Soaked jeans that diesel had spilled on in a bucket with Downy fabric softer for 2 hrs, and then washed normally and the smell was gone.

My husband has worked on aircraft fuel tanks for years. He comes home reeking of the JP-8 jet fuel that he gets exposed to. I'm extremely allergic to any kind of scented products so I had to find a way to remove the smell from his clothes without using more chemicals. Get ready, it's the simplest thing and it always works.

I put everything he wears including underwear and socks that reek of jet fuel in the sun! Sometimes it can take from a few days to a week, but it always works. The sun's rays just bake the smell out. Make sure you get all areas exposed to the sun and turn inside out as well.

What about in grey, rainy Western Washington winter weather? There's no sun to bake anything.

I used to use pinesol in the wash to remove diesel.

THE THING THAT WORKS BEST IS WASH AS USUAL AND PUT WHITE VINEGAR IN THE RINSE CYCLE, IT WORKS, HAVE USED IT FOR YEARS FOR ALL KINDS OF ODORS EVEN DOG URINE.... TRUST ME
