Stus-List Diesel Spill

A few weeks ago, I spilled approx. a half a cup or 200 mls of diesel in 
the engine compartment that made its way under the cabin floor boards to 
the bilge.  I have flushed several times with Dawn liquid detergent and 
hot water, however, there is still a trace of the diesel which I would 
like to eliminate.

Every time a pump the bilge now, there is a hint of fuel in the 
discharge which is annoying to all.

Is there a specific product anyone has used successfully to eliminate 
the diesel that is more effective than liquid soap?
