After cutting the onions it left bad onion smell on hands. I wash it well with a good hand cleanser it reduce the smell but did not remove the smell properly.So, how can I remove it properly very quickly. Is there any home remedy for this?

  • Touching a stainless-steel spoon or knife will immediately remove garlic smell from your fingertips, if you've been peeling or chipping garlic. I don't know if it works on onions, but it's worth a try. Commented Dec 1, 2018 at 20:27
