Garlic, onion, and stainless steel
    #2303146 - 02/05/04 01:26 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone know how stainless steel removes the garlic/onion smell from your hands after you chop a bunch of them up? I mean you can use a lot of soap and scrub, but it'll still smell.

"Metals that compose the alloy, stainless steel, catalytically enhance the
oxidation of the odorous compounds. The products of the oxidation are no
longer quite so persistent. Many are relatively water soluble and thus can
be rinsed away. Not all kinds of stainless steel alloys will work."

"I use this method too. I have pondered this for a while, and I think it has
something to do with the nickel in the stainless, but I have not figured out
the chemical reaction/mechanism of neutralization of the onion oils."
