the smell of onion from your hands after chopping onions
If you have ever
cut onions and survived the inevitable crying it causes, you
have then probably noticed how your hands smell like onions...
even after you have thoroughly washed them with hot water
and soap. The smell of onions just seems to cling to your
skin, especially your hands. But you don't exactly want to
smell like onions if you are making dinner for your hot date!
To remove the smell
of onions, there are two tried-and-true tricks you can use.
The first, simply rub a small amount of dry mustard into your
hands. The second, you can rub your hands with white vinegar
to remove the smell. Most prefer the mustard trick, because
they don't to simply replace the smell of onions with the
smell of vinegar! But both work if you don't have dry mustard.
Just wash your hands thoroughly with soap after the vinegar.
If you need to
remove onion breath, chew on a piece of parsley with a bit
of vinegar on it.
