    diesel, skin in the game-gctid808278

    any good tips on how to get rid of the diesel smell, once some has got on your skin?

    I've only tried dish soap and gojo wash downs - with almost no improvement.

    does someone have a good trick to get the smell off? prefer not using fire...

    Wear it like cologne - it'll eventually go away on it's own

      Were vinyl gloves and when throw then away!

      That diesel is being absorbed into your skin, it will burn skin cells and kill them.

      I look at the backs of my hands from gasoline, diesel, acetone, mineral spirits, and I have very thin skin because all that solvent burned my skin cells off, slowly but surely!

        I saw a suggestion for using regular Coca-Cola and another for white vinegar.

        So, how about clothing too? I tried the vinegar with the clothes, no help, then got in trouble with the admiral for stinking up the washer and the dryer.
