Removing Seafood Odors from Your Hands

After eating blue crabs, our hands always smell bad even after several washings. We use cider vinegar on the claw meat, so when we are finished eating, we pour what is left from the little bowl over our hands and rub it like we are washing up. I'm sure vinegar would also help remove other odors due to handling.

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

Lemon juice seems to do the trick for me. I also use it after handling onions.

Another good remedy is white vinegar... just sprintz or pour it over your hands then wait a couple seconds.

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

Anytime I have food odors on my hands, esp onions or garlic I "wash" my hands with toothpaste (with breath freshener kind, or even mouth wash.

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. :-)

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!
