Why? It is like man cologne. Best way to get it out:

1. Wear it out, but leaves a peppery smell

2. Wash with white wall cleaner ie: Spray Nine

3. Burn them and buy new ones

I am a heavy equipment mechanic, the only thing that gets the smell completely out of my clothes is the laundry service that washes my uniforms, and I do not want to know what they wash my clothes in considering how dirty I get them sometimes. As far as the stuff that my wife washes (t shirts) it usually takes 2-3 washes before the smell is completely gone. Good Luck!

Thank you to all of those who have served or continue to serve our country to keep our country free!

I had some chick hug me at the post office one day. I left and smelt like her perfume.

Dumped 5 gallons of diesel on the floor and rolled around in it to get the perfume smell out.

use it to your advantage

Yeah dude. When I fumble a full fuel filter out of my grip and it dumps diesel all over me, it makes my day. All my clothes smell amazing... my shoes smell great too. The ladies love it.

Also, its nice if the fuel is still warm... especially on a cold winter day. It's like jumping in a jacuzzi.
