Garlic has a very potent smell about it. After chopping garlic, you may notice that you still have the odor of it on your hands - up to hours after. As delicious as garlic is, walking around smelling like it is another story.
To remove the garlic smell from your hands, simply rub your hands with a stainless steel spoon or other stainless steel utensil.
Don't have stainless steel utensils on hand? A little salt or baking soda rubbed on the hands should also do the trick.
