Lighter fuel ? In my washing?

I've just washed my son's things with the family washing!
He has always had a lighter in his jeans ( doesn't even smoke) and this time l forgot to take it out!
Something has leaked hasn't it?
The clothes smell horrible!
How many times should l wash the clothes again?

Will washing even remove all of it?
Thanks all.

I'm also worried it has made all the clothes flammable?

Why does he have a lighter if he doesn't smoke? <misses point>

If he always has a lighter in his pocket you may be sure of one thing. He smokes.
Or he's an arsonist.

Was it a disposable lighter? I wouldn't have thought it likely to have leaked, even in the wash.

If the clothes smell though, I guess it has.

I'd wash everything at least twice more, then you can test for flammability by setting light to the item of clothing the lighter was left in. grin

Oh, and in his defence, I carry a lighter and I've never smoked in my life.

They are just such pretty things, and handy for candles, our broken hob, and they are just nicely engineered.

No he definitely doesn't smoke.
He likes fiddling with it confused
Sometimes its in his hoodie !
I was rushing with the washing.
It wasn't a disposable. I could hear the clacking in the machine. I thought it was the zip!

He likes fiddling with a lighter but doesn't smoke? He probably enjoys watching fire. As previous poster said, arsonist then.

I must say that the posts insinuating my son must be an arsonist/smoker are really helpful.hmm
