I have used salt to remove onion and garlic odors from my hands over the years, but you can also use stainless steel! You can purchase a stainless steel bar for less than $10 at specialty shops or search online. I just usually rub my hands over the divider in my stainless steel sink or the faucet itself. Works well, and you don't have the stinging sensation you might get from salt, if you have scrapes or cuts on your hands/fingers.

Lemon Juice also removes garlic and onion odor from hands and acts as a skin softener as well. Healing dry chapped hands. (05/14/2009)
