Hands permeated by garlic and onion odors have never really bothered me; it's the smell of a good meal, after all! But for those of you who don't feel quite the same, here's a product you might want to try: Method Kitchen Hand Wash.
Method Kitchen Hand Wash comes in two scents, Basil and Lemongrass, and the promise that it "eliminates stubborn food odors from hands." Both fragrances are pleasantly clean and natural. I found that they did indeed get rid of garlic and onion odors, with the added bonus of leaving my skin soft after the washing up.
Like all Method products, Kitchen Hand Wash is non-toxic, biodegradable, phthalate-free, and packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. (It does, however, contain sodium lauryl sulfate, for those who are concerned about that.)
In addition to onions and garlic, Kitchen Hand Wash is supposed to neutralize fish odors but as a vegetarian I didn't get to test this. Perhaps some of our readers can chime in with their experiences?
