Fuel Oil Smell on Clothes

My son delivers oil. How do I get rid of the smell on his clothing? What do I use in the washing machine?

Thanks,

My son was using the tractor, he accidently spilled some fuel on his watch. What would take the smell out on the band part?

Editor's Note: Try hand cleaner from the auto parts store, rub it into the band and wipe off. It should help remove the smell.

I need to know how to get the smell of fuel oil out of my husbands clothes.

Answers:

Leave Them Outside

Leave in the yard exposed to the weather for a few days. If and when the smell exits, launder as usual.

Vinegar

Put vinegar in the rinse water when laundering. My husband was a trucker. Works like a charm. (03/04/2005)
