Diesel odour

Hi there. I've just finished to changed oil and fuel filters on my boat. Now I am feeling slightly diesel odour inside. Any suggestions how to remove it😀. Thanks a lot in advance!

Re: Diesel odour

Feeling or smelling diesel? try wiping down all the surfaces you have been near with vinegar.

Re: Diesel odour

Where did the Diesel go?

Regular detergent (bilge soap) will dissolve it.

Re: Diesel odour

I have heard that ordinary wash softener of the supermarket takes care of diesel smells. Wipe impregnated surfaces with the Calgon or other softener.
