wtf? Lots it sounds like perhaps you need something to break down the petrol and allow it to mix with the water. It's probably "coated" the clothes and made them in effect waterproof.I'm not really sure what you could use to do this but perhaps it's a starting point to google?
this might help
Sorry! Toddler got at keyboard!!I was going to post I don't think you have much luck, lol. Any other chemical you use will have its own hard-to-shift residual stink, most likely.
Oh I see
what about a lot of washing up liquid to break down the petrol?? don't what ever you do try this in the washing machine though!!!!!!!
Thanks all, Snowy kitten will try washing up liquid!
