Re: Remove Diesel Smell

Everything is a waste of time and money until you remove the diesel which has soaked in, and afterwards seal any porous surfaces which may still contain diesel.

In between? Heat, sunlight, ozone, ventilation all help drive it out, but it also takes TIME because you're trying to get some very 'sticky' molecules out of materials they have had a good time bonding with. And of course a good scrubbing with something that can remove oils (like Liquid Tide detergent) to make sure it is all cleaned off the surfaces, before you reseal them.
