Washing Mesh Jacket

Need some help! My Mesh Jacket that I use for commuting to work has started to stink up due to massive sweat (black in az summer is a bad idea) as well as the exhaust stink. The sweat stink has gone away after 2 washes, but I cannot for the life of me get the exhaust stink out.

Any ideas or suggestions?

I soak mine in a bucket of blazing hot water and a whole bottle of 409, seems to work pretty good

You will be forever branded as a Hornet rider.....

My best advice is to take it to a car wash that does steam cleaning and hang it on one of those things where you put your floor mats and steam clean the outside of it, because that is probably where most of the stink has embedded itself. Just be careful not to get to close or you might cut some stuff from the pressure.

Mister clean, bucket of water and a plastic bristled brush. Works for me and smells nice for a while after.
