Garlic is excellent to cook with, but if it gets on your hands and fingers, you are going to have a hard time getting it off. That stench will stay on your hand for hours and imagine smelling that all day. Well there are a couple little tricks you can use to get rid of that garlic smell and get on with your life, without worrying about that pungent smell following you around.
Rub Something Made Out of Stainless Steel
Sounds weird doesn’t it? Rub your hand on stainless steel and the scent of garlic magically goes away? Yes, it is not too far-fetched and you should definitely give it a try. If your hands are all garlic’ed up, then rub your hand on something like a stainless fork, knife, spoon, sink or faucet, soap up, wash rinse and repeat till the smell of garlic is gone.
Use a Good ol Lemon
Lemon juice is here to rescue! If your hands and fingers have that garlic smell on it, then you can use lemon juice to get it off. Just pour lemon juices on your hands, rub together and wash off. It is as simple as that.
Use Salt or Baking Soda
Another neat little trick is to use either baking soda on the hands. All you need to do is apply, rub your hands together and rinse with water. The end result is, well garlic free hands.
