Default My oil burner!

So last night we had an emergency oil burner incident. One of the lines broke off and we had fuel oil all over the basement. We called in the repairman and he helped us get alot of it up with Kittie litter and believe it or not vinegar to get rid of the smell. I still smell it in the air though and have opened all the windows as long as i can because the weather is cold!

Does anyone know of any other way to get the smell out of the air or should i go back to vinegar on the floor where it spilled?

I am not sure if this will work but have you tried using some Pine Sol. I find this works on alot of different smells. Hope this might help.

Ugh... what a horrible incident! My mother suggests making a paste with baking soda and scrubbing that all around in the area - or even using baking soda and vinegar together (careful, it bubbles! )

Hmm baking soda. Ill go back down and use that next lol. I can still smell it on occasion. The vinegar really worked nice for the most part but ill just baking soda as well. I use that for bug bites.
