    Gas and chlorine

    My buddy spilled some gas on his garage floor the other day and asked me if pouring bleach on it would help the smell (or blow up the garage) -- honestly, I don't know how gas and 12% chlorine would react - any thoughts?

    Hi Ted,

    I'm sure you're looking for a chemist here, but, not :P

    I'd open all doors, hose out the garage w/water, (use cat litter to absorb if necessary & sweep), and crank up the fans!

    Clean up, wash out and get fresh air in there!

    Remove anything that has gasoline on it, like carpeting or matts, to the outside and hose off and air out!

    Ted,

    Use dawn dishliquid soap and water. Water alone only is dispersed in gasoline. The vapors that are there can easily be removed with a lemon type of dawn dishliquid. I have used this method in carpets in the garage as well and that has worked well.

    Then when its dry I use the arm & hammer animal deotorizer spray. Its made for our pets and helps with carpets ect in the house.

    I also used white vinegar as well as that is another substance that we use to help neutralize animal accidents!

    Any of the above should work. Start small and work your way up. If its just on the cement, then plain soap and water with a scrub brush should do the trick.

    Hope that helps.

    THANK YOU both!! There was no carpet involved and we put down some 'speed dry' to soak up the liquid and turned on a fan.

    Even when it's not a pool issue, you guys are the BEST!!!!

    You could have just lit a match. That would have taken care of it!
