When chopping onions and garlic, your skin can easily pick up their aroma; sometimes it’s not a bad thing, but it can be overwhelming, or even unwanted when you’ve moved on to preparing dessert!
To get rid of the odour without paying money for those little steel “soaps” marketed for the purpose, try the following trick: Wash or rinse your hands, then rub them along your kitchen sink’s stainless steel faucet (water tap); rinse again, and smell your hands (before and after). You’ll notice a huge difference! If a residual odour remains, rub them once more and rinse. It works every time, and requires no special soap or gadget.
