Q: How to get rid of gasoline odor?

asked by on

I spilled gasoline in the trunk area of my van a week ago today. We've tried soaking it up with baking soda, armor all gas neutralizer, cleaning the carpet and airing it out. There is still a very strong odor at the driver seat area. What else can we try?

Hi there:
