I did it. Soaked my shoes and pants with Jet A. Any cure or just throw them out?
Help.

Hopefully you have a work washing machine so ya don't stink up your household one.

Put a can or two of coke with your soiled clothes and detergent. Hopefully dark colours so coke won't stain it so much. It'll get 90% of the smell out.

I know sounds bizarre but works.

Otherwise, don't fret. You will just smell like the rest of us.

If you've got spare clothes to wear, just leave the JetA soaked articles outside in the sun for a few days - the fuel will evaporate eventually. When the smell is gone or nearly gone, give them a good wash and you should be good to go.
