Removing the garlic smell from your hands can be a very difficult thing to do. Sometimes you just can't stand the smell. Maybe you have a date and don't want to stink, but just can't get that smell out of your skin. There is a way to neutralize the odor so that you can get on with your life. After you get done cooking with either garlic or onions or any other stinky food, run your hands under some warm water. Then get some coffee grounds and mash them up and get them wet. Once the grounds are wet you can wash your hands using the coffee grounds as a substitute for soap. Once you have scrubbed the grounds into your skin, you can run your hands under some warm water to get rid of the smell. Now instead of your hands smelling like garlic, they will smell like a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
