October 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #209: Gasoline Stain Removal from Shoes

Tip of the Week

To remove gasoline from your shoes, first place the stained areas facedown on paper towels. Apply dry-cleaning solvent to the back side of stain, replacing the paper towels frequently. Allow to dry, then rub in liquid detergent or dampen stain area with water and rub with bar soap or detergent paste. Rinse and launder (if washable). If any odor remains, add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle of you washer, as this should take out any remaining smell. Air dry, stuffed with paper towels or newspaper to help the shoes retain their shape.
