Four Garlic Smell Hacks That Work!

Are you tired of your hands and fingers smelling like stinky garlic? Check out these four hacks that work to rid the garlic smell.


Your hands will smell minty fresh when you pour some mouthwash on your hands and rub together for about 10 seconds and then rinse with cold water.


As long as you don’t have cuts or scrapes on your hands, cut a lemon in half and wipe the cut side across your hands and fingers.

Tomato Juice:

Massage tomato juice on your hands for about 10 seconds then rinse with cold water. The juice will neutralize the garlic smell. It’s a little weird, but we’ve seen tomato juice neutralize the odor of a dog’s fur after being sprayed by a skunk!

Stainless Steel:

What? Ok, this one might be out there, but it’s effective! Rub your fingers against your kitchen faucet or stainless steel sink, then rub them under cold water to rinse.
