Anyone who cooks knows what it’s like to have oniony, garlicky, or fishy-smelling hands. Here are some simple and effective tips for making hands that have been exposed to pungent odors smell sweeter fast!
Included are the easy instructions for making a miracle-working deodorizing pad that will effectively sweeten away odors from just about anything.
For pungent garlic hands:
Dry-wash your hands with coffee-grounds. The ground will absorb the garlic smell.
For onion hands:
Roll fresh leaves of parsley between your hands. The parsley will neutralize the smell of onion.
For “fishy” hands:
Rub hands with vinegar or lemon juice to relieve the fishy smell.
Special deodorizing scrub pad for any kind of smelly hands:
Obtain some dried lovage herb. Place dried lovage in a small muslin or cheesecloth bag. When needed, run the bag under hot tap water and rub the pad over your hands to remove clinging odors. It works wonders.
