    When I changed my transmission and transfercase I had a minor spill from when the fluid shot out of the drain plug. I cleaned it up with rags and then just put all of the dirty rags from the change in the wash. Now the wash has that funky transmission fluid smell, and i dont want to put another load through now till its gone.
    Right now im just doing an empty load with some bleach.
    Andting else to consider??

    thx
