Removing Gasoline Smell from Wood Furniture

Does anyone know how to remove gasoline smell from wood? I purchased a 1930s dresser at a garage sale and discovered three of the drawers contained a strong gasoline odor. The dresser is in excellent condition and the price was $10, a real find.

You can stuff the drawers with crumpled up newspapers. They usually take odors out of things easily. Wait a few days & then remove newspaper. If it's not gone yet, do it again. It should work!

I had a similar problem with a wood floor in a garage. I soaked the area with liberal amounts of 91% isopropyl alcohol, scrubbed it with a stiff brush, wiped up the excess, and then put a fan on it to help evaporate the remains...worked like a charm! Went from overwhelming to no smell with one treatment.

Charcoal works very well at absorbing odors, but be sure to use pieces without lighter fluid. If necessary you can seal the piece with shellac.
