How do I get gas odor out of clothing?

Remove Gasoline Odor From Clothing

To remove the odor of gasoline from clothing, place the clothing in a large bucket of cold water. Add two cans of coke to the water and a box of baking soda. Allow the clothes to soak for 24 hours. Then, hang the clothes on a clothes line to air dry. Finally, place the dry garment into the washing machine and launder as usual.

What removing gasoline from leather? I'm pretty sure that soaking leather in water for any amount of time is a bad idea...
