People that come to my house usually ask me "Johanna what is this for?" and when I tell them they are usually surprised. Well, this is a Steel Soap and is used to get rid off the smells of onions and garlic from your hands. When you chop onions or garlic the smell stays on your hands all day. Stainless Steel gets rid of the smell by running your hands under water with the steel soap, washing your hands like you would with a real soap. Not sure why this works, but it does. So the next time you have smelly hands grab a spoon and try this, you are going to be amazed.
