Garlic odor and jalapeno burn on hands

CocoaNut Sep 17, 2010 03:07 PM

Heard an interesting remedy today involving garlic odor and jalapeno burn on hands. Rub hands and fingers on stainless steel. A woman doing a cooking demo swore that it works. She said she uses the divider between her kitchen sink, but stainless doo-dads resembling a bar of soap are available. I suppose that means All-Clad should do the trick also.

    I just rub my hands all around my sink. Works for me.

      anything stainless will work -- I use a soup spoon.

      Dunno why -- just know it does.

        rubbing alcohol also works.
