My daddy always poured diesel on any kind of wound.  He said that it killed germs. 

We had a half grown dog that was chasing a rabbit, and the rabbit ran in between the tines of an up-turned chisel plow.  Well, the dog ran into the chisel plow and cut his head open.  My Daddy poured diesel fuel on the dogs head.

The dog did not make it.

My daddy had a goat one time and he was..well never mind.

I may have mentioned this before. Chlorophyll is supposed to be one of the best of all natural deodorizers, and fresh cow manure is loaded with chlorophyll. I don't know how well that would work with laundry, but I am sure you'll want to rinse that manure out with some gasoline when you are done deodorizing.

But was his head wound germ free?

I have a diesel drip system also.
 The only time I've gotten fuel on my clothes it fillig the drip tank with a five gallon fuel can instead of a transfer pump. 
 But darned if I can get the smell out on the first trip to the laundry mat.  I dont run them through MY washer dryer thats for sure.

When I fished commercially, the diesel smell faded away nicely after a couple of days of sleeping in fish guts and bait. No problem !

Fish guts are a great deodorizer.  After the fish guts, you can't smell anything else  :D

Maybe I have the drip line going too fast. I have a Cooks MP-32 with the wiper system and it works well. I'll slow it down and see what happens. Between my sawmill episodes and trapping season my wife has had all the strange and bad smells she can stand. I'm kind of partial to urine smells and skunk essence. All the more reason to get a shop built and get out of the garage.

I probably don't saw as much as you do,but I use half bar and chain and diesel. If I smelled like diesel the wife would have a fit. And than some.

If the mp32 has the same wiper system as my ac 36 you are using way too much...Keep a look at the blade and the wheel if its clean...that's enough.  You don't want excess diesel on the wood or you.  Banjo

i had the same problem with fry oil after a day of cooking, washing in regular detergent wouldnt touch the smell, so i used 1/4 cup of blue dawn, about a cup of vinegar probly a 1/2 cup of baking soda and some regular detergent, with the hottest water i could get.  then i rewashed them on a normal cycle with normal detergent, gone.

I just toss diesel soaked clothes in the wash with the regular clothes, come out clean and don't smell.

Also wash rags in the washer.  Have grease, oil, diesel, gas, whatever on them.  Usually run those through twice though.

Not like having diesel smelling clothes is a bad thing though.  I tell people that's what a working man is supposed to smell like... diesel/gas, grease, exhaust, etc.
