Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to remove fuel odors from clothing. If there is a man in your house, whether he be young or old, something has come home smelling like gas. All you have to do is, make sure you have vinegar around at all times. It is the best odor remover on the planet, I'm convinced. Throw the laundry into the washing machine. Let....turn it on to where it will start filling up with water. Add about a cup of vinegar. You don't have to measure it out. It doesn't have to be exact. The vinegar's harmless, it's non-toxic, it's biodegradable. It doesn't bleach anything. Just add a splash in there and let it soak. Don't let the washing machine turn on the wash cycle yet, just let the water fill up. Keep the lid open, dump the vinegar in, and let it soak for about ten minutes before you add the detergent, and then let it go through it's normal wash cycle. That is the best way to remove fuel odor from clothing. I'm Rachel Yatuzis.
