How do you remove gasoline smell from the trunk of a car?
By Rafael from NYC, NY
I saw this tip once for a lady who had spilled a gallon of milk in the trunk. She was told to buy a bag of charcoal briquettes for the grill (the kind without lighter fluid), lay the bag in the trunk and split it open on top side. She said that leaving that in there for a while absorbed all of the smell and totally got rid of it. Hope this works for gasoline too!

I spilled golf cart gasoline in the trunk of my car. I removed the mat and used baking soda, but it still smells. I am now becoming sick from the fumes.
