    Help Gasoline on ACUs

    Advertisements
    My husband got gasoline all over his Acu shirt. I know you are not supposed to put things with gas on them in the washer so I am soaking in the tub with hot water and some laundry soap is that right or should I do doing something else to get it out? Thanks in advance!!

    found this online...

    My husband often gets fuel, grease and other odorous materials on his clothing at work. Baking soda works wonders! Just add 1/2 cup or so when you wash your clothes and you should be fine Febreeze also came out with a new odor removing product for laundry which you can give a try. I'd wash the clothes first with baking soda, then smell them. If they smell clean toss them in the dryer. If they still smell like fuel, wash them again. It's better not to bake in the nasty smells

    I've never put something with gas in the washer, but I wouldn't wasnt to find out the hard way

    I would soak it in warm water with baking soda to try and neutalize the gas, then wash out really well and wash it. I would hang it to dry if it smelled like gas (not hot dryer) but that's me.

    How do men always manage to do stuff like that?!?! At least you were able to save the shirt right?
