I smell like onions. Its coming out my pores or something. I made Barbecue Meatless Meatballs for dinner last night, and had to cut up an onion and so then it was on my hands that way. But this morning, I woke up feeling like an onion, even though I’ve washed my hands like 30 times!! Maybe it was a super potent onion!!!

Sometimes it’s hereditary. Like true alcoholics actually sweat alcohol because they can’t process it, some people sweat onion. My mom and I both smell like it for a couple days after we eat onions, it’s kinda annoying. I avoid it unless I know I’m going to be alone for a while.

If it’s your hands that still smell like onions, try rubbing them on stainless steel, like your faucet. Or, rub the halves of a lemon on them and then rinse. It’s a common problem!

I have some Bath & Body Works anti-bacterial soap in Kitchen Spice that I LOVE. It leaves my hands smelling pretty good smile I’ve also read that you should rub the back of a spoon all over your hands.

yup, the stainless steel or tomato juice are the best old wife cures, but exfoliating really well with a loufa or a salt scrub is also effective. Rubber gloves help to prevent it and I use my small food processor for anything other than slicing an onion. Having that smell linger on me makes me sooo sick. *sympathy*
