If you have a stainless steel sink, just wet your hands and rub them on the sink for 10-15 seconds and the odor will be gone. If you do not have the mentioned sink, use a stainless steel knife or other utensil. It works!
I use lemons, too! I just rub my hands with the moisture still remaining on the inside of the rind that was used to squeeze the lemon juice on the crab. :-)
I have used fresh herbs on occasion. Fresh parsley is the very best, rubbing a few bits of it on fingers and over hands is very effective. Sweet basil is another that works well. It doesn't take much, but leaves a fresh smell where a "not so fresh smell" was before. This is mainly because i had these growing at the time. Hope these ideas add some help just in case the vinegar isn't available, or any of the other things like lemon juice, which is also good. Loretta from Theodore Alabama
Another good remedy is white vinegar... just sprintz or pour it over your hands then wait a couple seconds.

Washing your hands with tooth paste also eliminates sea food smells.
