We've talked about removing the garlic smell from your hands, and ways to keep it off in the first place. Rubbing your hands on stainless steel really works, and the most convenient surface we've come to use is:The kitchen sink! We've developed a habit of rubbing our fingertips on the upper portion of the sink closest to us after handling garlic in the kitchen. Its a common surface that is frequently made of stainless steel in kitchens across the spectrum. And it's a great incentive for keeping the sink really clean - it's always right there and handy during prep work.
What stainless steel surface do you use if rubbing stainless is your preferred method for removing the garlic smell from your hands?
