The best way to wash spilled gasoline out of clothes is by a multi-step process involving odor removal with baking soda, pretreating with both liquid dish detergent and stain stick, and a final wash with hot water. For best results, blot up as much of the gasoline as possible from the clothing with an absorbent cloth or some paper towels as soon as the spill occurs. Then begin the washing process as soon as you get home.
