“Do your fingers stink like onions after you handle them? I had to list the ingredients the way that I did because I couldn't list the knife. I have never used lemon, but it can't hurt! :) You won't believe how well this works! It usually takes away the smell of garlic too. You can use a dull butter knife but if you are not comfortable using a knife, you can use some other resources of stainless steel. Enjoy!”
1 nice smelling hand

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cold running tap water (the colder the better but don't freeze yourself)
  • fresh lemon (you do NOT need this, the lemon is optional but a stainless steel knife is 100% necessary!!!! MUST b)


  1. Wash hands after handling onions.
  2. Under cold running water, rub the side of your knife along and between your fingers and over the rest of hands. If you are using a sharp knife - BE CAREFUL! I run the knife along with the blunt side leading and have never been cut!
