How do I remove diesel smell from a dog's paws?
Jessica from Elgin
Yes, I would say just wash them over again and again until the smell is gone. I would also suggest that you put Vaseline or some other oil or gel on the paws in between washings to keep the pads of the feet from getting too dried out.
Use original liquid Dawn dish detergent. Mix with water, then rinse. Repeat until removed.
I place clothing items in the washer, usually with "cold" water and let it soak. Sometimes my husbands work clothes get any of the fuel, diesel, kerosene spilled on them. I prefer to soak overnight, then empty the tub and just wash normally. Seems to be working fine for me. I started doing this cause I remembered the oil spills being cleaned up with Dawn.
Just like people, a good soap scrubbing ;-)
If a dog gets into a skunk they say to use tomato juice. We were camping and only had catsup-it did the job. Might want to give it a try. Less time consuming than scrubbing, scrubbing, and scrubbing.
