I don’t know about you, but I hate to cut onions and garlic, just because of the smell it leaves on your hands.
There are two common ways of getting rid of the smell and that is to use lemon juice to wash your hands or to wash a stainless steel spoon against your hands.
Usually when I’m cutting onions or garlic I’m also cutting other veggies. I have discovered that if you cut your onions/garlic first and then cut celery, there is no residual smell from the onions and garlic. Your hands smell like celery after your done cutting, but that tends to wash off with soap and water! Plus the smell of celery is much better than the lingering smell of onions and garlic!
