• Hello there. Just rub your hands on stainless steel, a spoon, whatever. Often you will see a small block of this in a chefs kitchen. It absorbs the odor. If you dont have any stainless steel available, you can use a little salt or baking soda rubbed on the hands should do the trick, also.   I hope this is somewhat helpful.
  • Lemon juice. That stuff will get rid of ANY smell. Of course, then you'll smell like lemons...
  • Wash with vinegar or better yet, tomato juice.
  • It won't go away. Garlic smell is pervasive and will continue to seep out through your sweat. Want to try an interesting experiment? Peel a clove of garlic and put it in your sock. Wait a few hours, then ask someone to smell your breath. Garlic! Fortunately I love the smell of garlic. If you don't mind the smell, then screw it, let the haters walk around with nosegays if they really can't stand it.
  • Stick them in a stinkier place than garlic.
  • Ok, are you ready for this? Use tomato juice or ketchup.
  • Lemon Juice will do it.....
  • If you dig out these balloons out of this drug donkey's a$$... garlic will be the least of your worries
  • Go away? Why would you want that? Garlic smells great!!! Garlic is a sign of strength...just gotta know how to wear it.
  • Rubbing your hands on stainless steal to get rid of the smell of onions works, so it might work for garlic too?? let me know, i'm curious now :)
  • This is quite possibly the greatest question I have ever seen asked in the history of AB. Awesome.
  • I rub my hands along the stainless steel sink or faucet. Works every time :)
  • It will eventually go away. To prevent it in the future, when you go to wash your hands wash them in COLD water first. It will close the pores so the fragrance can't get in as easily. Wash with a nice lemon soap. Then you can warm your hands up in warm water.
  • I heard once that smells like that seem stronger in your mind and they really don't smell that strong to others.
  • Wash your hands with strong dish soap (like Dawn or Joy). You could even try a mixture of vinegar and water or baking soda and water if you feel adventurous. There's also this thing called a rub-out bar that you can use. It's made of stainless steel and shaped like a bar of soap. It rubs out odors. You can buy one for about $10-15 at places like Bed Bath and Beyond.
  • Soak your hands in some warm water mixed with dish soap for a few minutes. Then take a pumice stone and give yourself a good scrub. If it doesn't work the first time do it again. Eventually you will be garlic-free!
