Love cooking with Garlic, but hate when you chop those suckers up and get garlic fingers? Meet your new friend: The Stainless Steel Rub Away Bar.
I've heard that rubbing your fingers on stainless steel helps get the garlic smell to go away - I thought that was crazy. How could stainless steel get the smell out of your fingers? Seriously? What kind of witchcraft sorcery is this? Well, let me tell you:
IT WORKS. You could just rub your fingers in your sink basin if it's stainless steel. Or if you don't have one, you could use the Rub Away Bar
Anyways, all you have to do is just rub your hands on this bar, like a bar of soap, and then dry your hands. Voila, no more garlic fingers. (I need to stop saying garlic fingers - it just makes me want garlic french fries...)
I did happen to do some googling for you, and found this little number:
"Stainless steel binds with sulfur molecules on your hands when touched. That's why it gets rid of the scent of garlic (and also onion, and fish odors). "

Honestly, I kind of want to rub it under my armpits and see if it gets rid of the smell.... BRB.
No, it does not work. Unless maybe your armpits smell like onion and garlic? But I also had deodorant, so I don't think it did anything.
Don't believe me but also don't want to buy it? That's cool, sometimes you don't want to give in to that consumerism -I get it. Just rub your hands against the inside of your clean stainless steel sink basin, if you have one. Bam. Bye-Bye Garlic fingers (mmmmm.... french fries). Tried it and are equally amazed like me?
