DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES

Don't laugh, but I was sooooo desperate to remove that onion smell from my hands that I tried several remedies all at once.

Salt, lemon juice and a metal spoon. 

I poured about 2 tablespoons of sea salt into my hand, soaked it with pure lemon juice concentrate, and massaged the mixture into my hand with a large metal spoon.  All I needed was a glass with vodka and I'd be a human cocktail.  But guess what?  It worked.  I'm not really sure what did the trick, all I know is that the onion smell is gone.  So a big thanks to everyone who wrote in with suggestions.

Now... any suggestions on how to get a salty, slightly metallic lemon smell off of my hands?

I think an onion would do it.

Garlic would certainly mask the new smell, or old one, or any one!  LOL

Easy one, I found this solution a long time ago working in a kitchen. Baking soda. That's it nothing else. Just mix a smudge of water in with the baking soda on your hands make a paste and rub it over your hands like you would if you were washing them. Rinse, smells gone. Works for most smells actually. Why not, takes odors out of your refrigerator, helps keep the smell down in kitty litter boxes. And now it works to take the smell of onions, lemons, metal off your hands *Winks*. (Hugs) Indigo

I'd heard of salt, but never tried it.  I usually use toothpaste, and it seems to work pretty well.
