How to Get Rid of the Smell of Garlic?


Love the taste of garlic, but hate the lingering smell? Here are some tips on how to remove the odor of garlic.

1. Rub or spray your hands with lemon (or other citrus fruit) juice.

Make your own citrus spray by adding the grated rind (peel) of any citrus fruit (e.g. lemon, orange, grapefruit) to hot water. Allow to cool, then strain the water into a spray bottle.

2. Rub your hands on stainless steel or use a “steel soap.

In theory, the steel reacts with the sulfur in garlic neutralizing the smell.

3. Use soap and stainless steel.

Apply soap to your hands and use a clean stainless steel spoon to rub it all over your hands, even in between fingers.
