How can I get rid of onion smell from my hands?
By Linda M.
Just run your hands under cold running water while using a stainless steel spoon at the same time and wipe the spoon and running water all over your hands where the smell is. Works like a charm.
Vinegar will do the trick, good luck.
Lemon juice works too.
Used coffee grounds do the trick. Works for fish, garlic and other odors. Just scoop some into your hands and rub then rinse.
Run your hands and fingers over your stainless steel sink if you have one - you can buy a block of stainless steel "soap" which is a soap shaped piece of stainless steel you use as if it were soap and it removes all sorts of nasty smells. I think you can get them at hardward stores.
I found that cutting celery after the onion removes the smell completely. You can add the celery to whatever dish you are making or just eat it.
I learned the stainless steel trick years ago. It works! I just soap my hands and run them back and forth over the sink a bit. And as Merry50 mentioned, you can buy a stainless bar of "soap" if you don't have a stainless steel sink.
Simply add salt to wet hands and rinse off in running water.
