    Gas and leather....... whoops

    This is a question for our experienced leather crafters and 'carriers' who do the 'yard work'.

    Gasoline and leather don't mix. My neighbor was filling her gas can for yard work and some gas spilled
    into her leather purse.

    Does anybody have any idea or knowledge on how, if it can be done at all, on how to get the gas smell outta leather?
    I'm pretty sure it can't be done but if anybody knows it'd be those of us who've (maybe) had to deal with ges spilling/splashing on our holster(s), boots, etc. In my life that is a mistake I've seemly avoided so I dunno if removing the smell and saving the leather can be done.

    Appreicate the help ya'll.

    it will dissipate over time but I would use a leather cleaner and a treatment because gas is dry (yes its dry) and leather has a natural oil and the gas will suck the oils out of the leather so you need to treat it and put the oil back in

    Spray it with 50% diluted vinegar (water and vinegar) and let it air dry. This works, I have used it on borrowed leather gear when accidentally doused while looking at a friends gas leak.

    That will get the odor out then use mink oil or leather cleaner or something similar to dress it up.

    Guru, my wife is helping the neighbor-lady with locating some leather cleaner.

    The diluted vinegar trick also works well at getting cigarette smoke smell out of fabric.

    I know salt will get the smell off your hands. Might work on a purse. Neatsfoot oil is pretty good stuff to condition it with. I got mine at tractor supply.

    When I saw the title of this post, I was not thinking 'Rated G'. .... um, those guys who posted above gave you good advice.

    OK, I'll slink off into the night and take my Marine brain and try to get it outta the gutter.

    Don't feel bad, after reading Yoda's post about looking for a "gas leak" in borrowed leather gear my first thought almost led to my last post I would ever be allowed to enter on this board.


    Something about "buttless" chaps and the tune from Y M C A came to mind.......
