To remove almost anything gunky, greasy, gummy or sticky from almost any surface, I have found that the best thing to use is one of three solvents, Lighter fluid, Gasoline or Rubbing Alcohol.
Do not put any washed clothing that contained gas or an other flammable fluids into your dryer. The result could be a serious fire. Nothing with flammable liquids should be put into your dryer. I wouldn't even put them in my washing machine. If it can't be removed outside in water, I would discard the item no matter what the cost.
To remove gummy substances or sticky stuff I prefer to use Goo Be Gone. I swear by it!
I use my hair dryer to remove most sticky stuff, especially labels..makes quick work of them.
I didn't suggest putting the clothes straight into the dryer after this treatment. In fact, I didn't even suggest putting gasoline ON your clothes in the first place.
TO CLARIFY: Lighter fluid FIRST, WASH clothes SECOND, THEN dry clothes.
Do NOT put clothing saturated in any chemicals straight into your dryer. As the Editor pointed out, gasoline is a bad choice with clothing anyway. Lighter fluid, however, is safe as long as you don't put it into the dryer.
