Hands Smell After Chopping Onions?

Cut a small piece off of your celery and rub it on your hands, knife, or other surfaces. The chemicals in the celery counteract the smelly chemicals in the onion.

Stainless steel works! I take a large stainless spoon and rub it under running water, like I'm washing my hands with soap, between fingers, and any place the onion has touched.
I love onion, but hated the smell left on my hands.

Rubbing your hands on stainless steel also removes garlic odor. I would still use soap to remove any oils, but the remaining odor is gone just with a swipe on the sink. (01/25/2005)

Lemon juice works, too, and you can also use it to get the onion smell off your cutting board! (04/06/2005)

Plain old table salt will take the smell of onion away and also helps with the sting of the hot peppers. Just wash hands with soap and water and sprinkle table salt on your hands. Smell gone like magic! (08/29/2005)

Tried just rubbing hands on faucet - didn't work. Tried using a stainless steel butter knife handle with salt and Dawn dish detergent all over hands and between fingers for at least 3 minutes. Helped some, but not 100 percent. It did work well to dry out my skin! Gold Bond medicated moisturizer finished off the onion smell and repaired the dryness to my hands. (01/09/2006)
