Does anyone know how to remove gasoline smell from wood? I purchased a 1930s dresser at a garage sale and discovered three of the drawers contained a strong gasoline odor. The dresser is in excellent condition and the price was $10, a real find.
You can stuff the drawers with crumpled up newspapers. They usually take odors out of things easily. Wait a few days & then remove newspaper. If it's not gone yet, do it again. It should work!
I had a similar problem with a wood floor in a garage. I soaked the area with liberal amounts of 91% isopropyl alcohol, scrubbed it with a stiff brush, wiped up the excess, and then put a fan on it to help evaporate the remains...worked like a charm! Went from overwhelming to no smell with one treatment.
