Gross, how to?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a decent way to get the smell of garlic off your hands?

 

I was making this chicken dish last night that required something like 20 cloves of garlic. So you can imagine I had handled a lot of it. But all night long (even as I slept) whenever my hands would brush past my face I would get that big ol garlic whiff (gross)

 

Garlic tastes great and smells great on food but not on your person, its nauseating me.

 

Any tricks or tips with this garlic smell?

When you roast it the smell goes away.

 

Not that I'm telling you to roast your hands  :whistling:

 

Or you could try a clothes peg on your nose.... :cool2:

 

But the best way is to walk around for three days with your hands above your head...

Just wash your hands a couple of times a day and it will wear off.  It may take a couple more days to wear off depending on how much you handled  Next time, use those plastic gloves you can get in the Health and Beauty section of a grocery store or from Walgreens, when you know you will be handling smelly stuff like garlic.  :)

I suggest garlic breath may occur after eating this dish so get used to the odour :D

I have a bunch of latex gloves by the way, and I never tried peeling and mincing garlic with them on, I'll have to give that a try. Good idea too.

Just letting ya's know my hands still reek and I will likely be wearing latex gloves to bed so I am not awaken by the garlic stink on my hands.

 

Ew, just ew

 

I even showered (and scrubbed my hands too) which was to no avail.
