sander06 Wow, deja vu! I thought we just went through this exercise in diesel odor removal. Of course, it might also just be my pain-medication kicking in.

sailaway21 Servicemaster is a nationwide company that specializes in cleaning residences and commercial buildings. They have a product they use on heating oil spills that will do the trick for you and they'll sell it to you. Failing that, check with any company that does flood/fire damage restorations for the same product.

Coffee grounds will help neutralize odors, but you have to get rid of the diesel for it to help much. Using Dawn or some other strong dishwashing detergent will help get rid of the remaining diesel contaminating the bilge.

denby There is a product to remove diesel oder. Oil heating companies use it in homes that have heating oil spills. Diesel and home heating oil is the same just different dies.

Diesel Smell

I don't know if this works, but I recently heard that dried coffee grounds were excellent for odor removal. Its cheap and if it works, well!
