    Like the title says. My hands smell like gas. I was replacing a fuel filter at work on an f-250 and got gas on my hands. I've washed them multiple times. used fast orange soap, regular soap, soaked my hands in burning hot water. Does anyone have some good suggestions on how to get rid of this nasty nauseating smell?

    Really? Never would have thought of that. Like skunk smell. Makes sense.

    Edit: tried it. Worked out great!!!

    Tomato sauce or juice also vinegar works too. The smell will go away in a few hours.

    I was trying to eat dinner and every time I took a bite of food I could smell gas. Was trying for a quicker solution.

    If none of this works, just Plasti-dip your hands

    Baby powder will work too. Pour a little in the palm of your hand and rub together for a minute. Wash off with soap and water.
