How to Get Diesel Smell Out of Clothes
1. Keep Them Soaked In Water for a While:-

The habit with most of the oils is that they float over water and if there is diesel in clothes that has not get dried or evaporated, this will make it come upwards and start floating over water. Drain off this water and then take the clothes out.
2. Wash Them Up In Detergent:-
Now when the water has been drained and clothes have been taken out of water, you have to fill another bucket with water and you have to add detergent to this water putting the clothes in it keeping them dipped inside detergent for half an hour and then you have to wash out the clothes using brush so as to wipe off if any stains are there. Drain the clothes again in clean water.
3. Put them under the Sun for Some Sun Rays to fall:-
After the clothes have been cleaned with detergent, you should take them to the roof to make them get dried under the sun spreading them on some wire tied over the roof under the sun. There is another property of petrol and diesel that they get evaporated when exposed to sun and thus if there would be any amount of diesel left in the clothes, it would get evaporated like this.
4. Iron Them Properly After Washing:-
Now after the clothes get perfectly dried, bring them downward to your room spreading an ironing sheet over the ironing table and iron these clothes properly so as to evaporate every single trace of diesel left in the clothes.
5. Let Some Good Deodorizer To Be Sprayed On The Clothes:-
Now there is no part of diesel left in your clothes and if you still feel a smell of diesel coming out of the clothes, you may choose to go for spraying some good deodorizer or scent over the clothes so as to make the clothes get rid of smell.
