Try This to Eliminate Garlic Smell from Your Fingers

The benefits of garlic are abundant, known as a superfood, this potent spice has the potential to reduce the risk of heart disease, cholesterol and even cancer. However, the smell of garlic leaves a lot to be desired. The compound responsible for that distinctive aroma we all have come to know and love/hate is called allicin.



As many of you might already know, water and soap just isn't enough to remove the smell of garlic from your fingers. But here's what you should do: just rub a slice of lemon or lime on your fingers and wash any remnants off with water (you might want to rethink this method if you have any nicks or cuts on your hands). This little trick will completely eliminate any traces of garlic. What's more, it's chemical free.
