Whether it be onion, garlic or raw fish, these smart tips can leave that strong kitchen odours away.
1. Soak your fingers in a bowl of fresh lemon juice, or warm tea for a few minutes. Rinse with water and soap. If you don't have lemon juice, get help from vinegar or mouthwash.
2. Combine 1 to 2 tablespoons iodized salt with enough water to bring it to a paste like consistency. Rub well and rinse. Smart way for fast hands exfoliation. You can also try rubbing on with sugar just in case you have open cuts in your hands so it won't hurt.
3. Neutralize smells by rubbing your hands against stainless steel (steel soap or a spoon) under running water. This ergonomic and decorative kitchen accessory is fun to use!
4. Make sure to use cold water when you wash your hands; warm water opens up the pores in your hands and traps in the onion smell.
