how to get JP-8 or diesel fuel off clothing? Answered

I got a rucksack that has JP-8 spilled on it. It wont fit in a washer and im not breaking it apart to make it fit.  Any suggestions. I have heard that coke will take it off, but i dont want it to be sticky.

I'd try waterless hand cleaner. I've had good luck using it to clean off spilled grease and oil out of my shirts. Then rinse with water and let dry. You could try coke and then rinse well.

Liquid soap - rub it in, rinse, repeat.

Ouch The smell! Wash in a tub of soapy water - it will take time. Eventually fresh air will take the smell away - Eventually!

If it's bad, some brake cleaner will get almost anything off, but you'll need to give it a good rinse off afterwards.
