I love cooking! But i hate trying to wash my hands properly to remove odors of garlic or onions.. I guess this steel soap would be perfect for me.
Tough, I wonder how it works.

Steel can remove odors. One trick chefs use after cutting garlic and onions - they buy their fingers on a stainless steel blade.

The sulfur from the onion, garlic or fish is attracted to and binds with one or more of the metals in stainless steel. Formation of such compounds is what makes stainless steel stainless. Onions and garlic contain amino acid sulfoxides, which form sulfenic acids, which then form a volatile gas-propanethial S-oxide that forms sulfuric acid upon exposure to water. These compounds are responsible for burning your eyes while cutting onions and also for their characteristic scent. The sulfur compounds bind to the steel efficiently removing the odor from your fingers.

Hm. that's actually really interesting.

Maybe I can get the same one and save some money on the normal soap.

I love cooking but I spend so much time and so much soap trying to wash my hands after this
