Cleaning Gasoline In Shoes

I have managed to spill gasoline in my shoes when filling up the car. I was wondering how to get the smell out of them. The shoes are made of synthetic.

Soak shoes in Dawn Dish Detergent and water. After a few hours, rinse and air dry! This detergent is a life saver for so many issues. Just make sure that it is Dawn and not the generic.

There are 2 ways I have found that worked best for me to get the smell of gasoline out of clothes or even off of your shoes. One was to use a cotton ball and rub scented baby oil over the surface of the shoes and sit them outside in the sun for a few hours. The second one was to use baking soda on the surface of the shoes and allow them to sit with the baking soda on them.

This can take up to 48-hours before the baking soda pulls the order out of your shoes. If it has gone to the inside of the shoe you will need to put some baking soda on a sock and place it inside the shoe to get rid of the order. You can also use the sock method on the outside of the shoe too.

First: There are all kinds of synthetic shoes but most use some type of glue to hold them together so I'm not sure you can soak your shoes in water/soap for a long period of time.
Any smell that is on the outside can probably be cleaned with blue original Dawn; try using full strength or diluted and rub or brush the complete outside (if your shoes can take this type of treatment). Rinse and let air dry - outside in sunshine if possible.

As to the inside; you could try using cat litter or baking soda; sprinkle inside completely (fill up the shoes if necessary) and place in a bag overnight. Check for odor and if still there; discard litter and place outside for a few hours - strong sunshine is best.

Some people recommend wiping down with white vinegar but I've never tried that - still; it may help.

Also; if you got gasoline in your car, you'll have to remove the mat and do some of the same cleaning as your shoes.
