I recently used the diesel pump on a frigid morning and got fuel on my polar fleece (synthetic material) gloves. I have soaked them, washed them normally, washed them in the dishwasher, soaked them in a detergent/water bath then tried rewashing them... I have even tried rubbing lemon juice on them, but the prevailing petroleum patina persists.
I there an efficient and effective way to clean the smell off of synthetic clothing such as polar fleece? Methods used to eliminate this odor from other materials (linen/cotton) have proven to be less successful with the polyethelyne fabric
