Onions and garlic can leave behind a pungent odor that can linger on your fingers even well after you're done cooking. This stainless steel bar from Rub-A-Way can help: Just rub it on your hands with or without water (same as you would with soap) and the molecules inside the steel will help you eliminate all those unwanted smells. The best part is that, unlike traditional bars of soap, you’ll never have to replace this one because of how it’s made.
