Gas Smell on Clothing

My mother-in-law drives a bus. She got fuel today and there was an air bubble in the hose and fuel got all over her shoes and sweatpants. How can we get rid of the smell?

Put the clothes in the washer with 2 cups of white vinegar and 1 cup of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Add detergent and wash as usual.
Hang outside to dry.

My husband drives a gas tanker, so I deal with this regularly. What I do is along with my regular detergent I add 20 Mule Team Borax, gets it out every time and in only one wash!
