After cutting or chopping onions, wet your hands, sprinkle salt generously in the palm of one hand and scrub your hands together with the salt. Rinse with water and the onion smell will be gone.

After cutting onions rub your hands on the stainless steel water fixtures and it will take the onion smell away every time.
Not necessary, either one. Simply wash your hands under cold water and the smell is gone. This was a tip in the paper over thirty years ago and I have used it all my cooking life. Never fails.
