To remove the odor of raw fish from your hands, squeeze a wedge of fresh lemon into your hands, rub your hands with the juice, and rinse them well.

Your hands can get stinky after cleaning or washing fish. Before washing your hands with soap, use salt first. Wet your hands with water, put salt on your hands and scrub it in. Then you can wash with water and soap again. The stinky smell will get removed.

Get your hands wet and then rub salt on them before handling fish. It will make the fish easier to grip and will diminish the fish odor on them. When you are done rub your hands with lemon juice and then wash them with soap and water.
Vinegar removes fish odour. When cooking, frying or baking add a drop of vinegar to get rid of the odour. (04/05/2010)
