Gas Smell on Rubber Soled Shoes

Soak soles in a pail with Dawn dishwashing detergent and water. 1 good long squirt for 5 gallons. If Dawn can get oil and gasoline off ducks and other water fowl, it can get it out of sneakers. Give it 24 hours under the sudsy water. you may have to agitate gently. You may have to do this for several days. Rinse well and wash in washing machine. Air dry. (11/01/2005)

I tried baking soda and vinegar paste overnight. My shoes still smelled like gasoline. Then I tried dawn dish detergent. They still smelled like gas. I have been sitting them in Dawn dish detergent and water, with a good amount of lemon oil. I think that the lemon oil is doing the trick.
