Cleaning Fuel Oil from Upholstery Fabric

My husband got fuel oil on the cloth seat of his truck. What can I use to clean, and get the smell out of it? Also what can I do to get fuel oil smell out of his clothes?

My husband was a trucker. His clothes smelled of diesel, but vinegar in the rinse water took care if that.

Talcum will absorb the oil then brush with vinegar water.

I'd spray with vinegar water, then sprinkle with 20 Mule Team Borax , cover with plastic overnight, then remove plastic and let dry well next day in the sun and brush or vacuum off.

God bless and help you. : )
