Every time I cut up an onion, I get that onion smell on my hands and I can't get it off. It will linger on me for up to 2 days. And since we eat onions often, I always smell like them, no matter how often I wash my hands. Does anyone know how to remove the smell from me or how to keep it from sticking?
I haven't found away to stop it from sticking other than wearing rubber gloves but the best way to get rid of it is lemon juice. Wash hand with warm soapy water, rub a lemon all over your hands, really squeezing the juice and then rinse and wash again.
I keep a bottle of "ReaLemon" in the firdge just for this purpose as I use lots of onions and garlic. That work well too but I think fresh works even better.
