Gas Spill on Carpet (no specific Audi content)
My wife was filling a gas can a couple days ago and did not tighten the
cap sufficiently. So a bit of gas leaked from the can onto the passenger
side carpet (I know, I know, but there was a good reason that the can
was on the floor in the passenger area instead on in back). I would
guess 1/2 liter or more of gas may have run out onto the carpet.
The question of course is how to get the gas odor out. I've tried
vacuuming with a shop vacuum, carpet shampoo and washing with water, and
leaving a small elec. heater with fan on the area. All help, actually
quite a bit the odor is virtally gone as long as the windows are open,
but very noticible with the windows shut now.
I would like to speed up the eventual evaporation. Any BTDT's out
there? Any soaps or detergents that might really make a difference on
