I have a problem. I am based in Kenya and am working on a site where a generator has spilled diesel fuel on the generator container floor. I wanted advice on what is the best detergent I can use to clean it off so I can spray another colour without a problem?

My fuel oil (diesel) furnace leaked yesterday. I am trying to remove the smell from the house, but am having no luck. Does anyone know how to remove it or even lessen in?

Diesel Furnace Oil Spill

Pour kitty litter on the oil to soak it up. Sweep that up and discard then sprinkle baking soda on the stain, which will sweeten the smell. The ones that are scented for kitty litter pans are the best for removing odors.

Diesel Furnace Oil Spill

We just had a diesel spill in our basement, as well, there are two very good products we found. Industrial strength PUSH it is an enzyme eater and takes the smell away, as well as, Odorgon.
We purchased both products at a place in Canada called Kleen All.
Hope this helps! (10/14/2008)
