Marvel Mystery oil, nice clove or whatever it is smell.

I don't believe Randy specified using the alcohol on the part, thus wasting it.

All metal, maybe bake it in the oven.

I think he just meant that you'd drink it until you no longer notice or care about the smell - correct Randy?

PS perhaps not by the pint though...

Yes - dip it in MMO - great stuff, sprinkle it around... use in your air freshener plug-ins

WD40 smells good too - maybe try spray some on as well.

Acetone evaporates rapidly and should not leave much of a smell,
you can try using a hairdrier set on cold to blow air into the container,
in a few minutes it should be free of all vapors.

I'm still trying to get my head around the idea of the wife smelling PB Blaster residue on an air/oil separator...

Alan - does she spend a lot of time with her nose in the engine compartment? Or do you have the air/oil separator on the dash in front of her seat? Or do you have a vent directly from the engine compartment to her seat?

Its not actually in the car at the moment... I made the mistake of drying/airing it out with a hairdryer (hers of course) - in the bathroom... she was out - but it was not a smart move...

I was cleaning it before that in the laundry room sink and it did stink in there for a few days too just from the residue washed out...

All good now... I'm allowed back in the bedroom...

Stan -Nope - Its not the car that smells... I haven't even installed it yet...

I'll be very careful where I use PB Blaster in future - I knew it stank already (you only need to use it once to know this) - but previously it always fully dissipated on on open surface in a day or so. The separator has been stinking for 9 days...

Guys, this is a years-old thread revived by a spam-bot (post #39). I've reported it, but...

Mods, clean-up needed on isle 3 !!

This "Spam Bot" was put onto Ozium as an odor eliminator for good use when one has rented a car with a smoking restriction and the renter has smoked a cigar in it. The Ozium comes in a little vapor spray pressure container and can be sprayed inside the car and left for a time (?) and the odor will be gone; maybe only for long enough to turn the car back in and be gone, I don't know. I used it on something similar, I don't remember what, but it worked just fine. I'm not sure just how one might use it for this old PB Blaster issue, but it might work by putting the item in some kind of container and then spraying the Ozium in with it. The stuff was available some time ago at the drugstore back in the corner of the store.

When I quit smoking, I asked the detailer at my Chevy dealer how to get rid of the smoke smell in my El Camino. He told me to put a few dryer sheets in the car, with it parked in the sun for a couple of days, change the sheets everyday. After 2 days the smell was gone.

I don't know if it'd work for PB blaster, but it's cheap, worth a try.

The smell was well dissipated over 4 years ago!. Acetone worked the best.

I didn't know Jerry was a spam-bot...
