Tasty Tip of The Day: Getting Rid of Garlic Stink

In continuing with my garlic theme, today I thought I'd share a tip my chef friend taught me.

I was lamenting to him about how I really did not love being stuck with garlic fingers but, I love using garlic so much there just really didn't seem like anyway of getting around it.

The secret:  rinse hands, then rub pennies between your fingers.
Something about the metal in them counter acts the pungent scent of garlic.

Neat right?!

So, there you have it - a solution to stinky fingers and a reason to crack open your bulging piggy bank (or maybe just open the little whole at the bottom so you don't have to smash Mr. Piggy B.).

  1. Great site and tip. I picked up stainless steel bar. Looks like soap and with water takes garlic and onion smells away. Great tip :)
