How to remove the seafood smell from your hands

Facebook friend Joseph read my previous post on Halabos na Hipon and the "problem" of smelly hands after the meal. Here is his remedy:

Pour a heaping spoonful of salt on your wet hands. Work the salt all over your hands, especially under the fingernails. When you've had a good rub, rinse with water. For good measure, rub lemon also on your hands (if you have some around). Finally, wash with soap.

Thanks for this tip, Joseph!

  1. You can also use a steel soap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stainless_steel_soap) to wash the smell off. It works :-)

  2. There was actually a catalogue dropped off in our house that had this steel soap, but we did not order :-(. It was 6.99 I think
