This little stainless steel bar of "soap" is the best thing ever invented for the kitchen. As I covered in a previous post I have a bionic nose, so the thought of having stinky garlic or onions on my hands just doesn't work for me at all.
My mom put it in my stocking last year and I have loved it ever since! You can use it with or without soap, and you just rub it around the same as a bar of soap. It magically makes stinky smells disappear! Now I can make my favorite French Onion Soup without having "onion hands" for a week! This think definitely works for me. (no I haven't been paid for this but if the manufacturer would like to make me the spokesperson I'm available!)
