    On the weekend I was emptying the gas from the gas can into the Jimmy, and I got my mom to hold the fuel so I could tip the can... well she never warned me and I overfilled the fuel spilling gas on her new gloves...
    she tried to wash them but they still smell like gas:o

    FWIW, I had some luck a while back getting fuel odor out of clothing by putting the items in a bag with some charcoal. It didn't get it out completely, but enough that after washing the items it was hardly noticable.

    Good Luck

    Washing machine is pretty mush ok... It is just the dryer that can be worrysome. The gasoline can vaporize under the heat and explode. Not will, but can. I would keep them out of the dryer just to be on the safe side.

    dood read the lid of your washing machien it says right there.

    gas will still create fumes even in the washer, just read about a gut a few weeks ago who was a painter, thought of a good way to get paint out of the close put them in the washer ans put a shot of gas in too.

    they were picking is ass out of his house from across the street.

    gas fumes @ 14% air mixture are AS explosive as tnt.

    the washer is stupid the dryer is asking for a darwin award

    hmm... good to know. I guess the fumes could build up and get ignited by the motor. That said, anyone who intentionally pours gasoline into the washer os just asking for trouble!:screwy:

    Why, exactly, would you pour gas into a washing machine. Doesn't seem like the sort of thing that should need a warning label. Plus, everyone knows that they dont run on Gas, they run on that detergent stuff. :whistle:
