Whenever I cook with garlic, the next three days my fingertips still smell like garlic.
I seem to remember reading something about lemon juice and or tomato juice. Something about the acid content.
I'll vouch for the stainless steel and cold water. Last spring I fed fresh fish to some pelicans down in Florida. Needless to say, my hands smelled pretty rancid afterwards. Anyhow, the guy that sold me the fish gave me this rectangular piece of stainless steel (he actually was selling them too) and told me to rub my hands with it under cold running water for two minutes. After two minutes...voila...said fish odor was completely gone.
To get rid of both onion and garlic smell I pour some table salt into my hands and rub them together for a bit, making sure to really concentrate on the fingers. Then rinse under the faucet. Always does the trick for me.
Quick picking your nose and you won't notice it as much.
My solution: try petting a skunk.
(Sorry, I'm in an evil mood today)
Do you have a pet dog or cat?
You're Asian, you can't escape it. I've tried for years.
Move to Italy. No one will ever notice.
I too can vouch for the stainless steel. Just wash your silverware after handling garlic or onions or have some ball barings handy.
Stop cooking with Garlic?
I do the same thing. Easy, and works remarkably well.
The old tried and true: Soap and water always works for me.
What's wrong with the smell of garlic?
If you're really worried about that, I would recommend adding the smell of fresh ginger. That way you get a nice balance!
