How do I get gasoline smell off my jeans?|
I've literally had these jeans for 4 days. Yesterday I had to get gas, and as soon as I pulled the nozzle out to pump, it spun around and got me with gas.
I googled how to clean them and have done the following: dry baking soda to soak up any excess, scrubbed dish soap and soaked for a half hour in hot water, applied a baking soda paste, let dry, scraped off the baking soda, used an OxyClean stain remover and washed in the washer. It still smelled like gas, so I repeated the dish soap and washed again. Still smell like gas.
Right now, I'm trying a vinegar soak. But if that doesn't work, I'm at a loss. The website I was reading says to wash them in an Orange-based All-Purpose cleaner as a last resort, but for the life of me I can't find any at any store.
If these were old jeans, I'd probably be giving up by now. But these are NEW. They are 70% Cotton, 16% Viscose, 12% Polyester, and 2% Elastane. Dark wash.
Help me save them, please!
