How to Remove Garlic Smell from Your Breath
and Hands Do you love the taste of garlic in your food,
but hate the lingering smell? Garlic produces cysteine sulfoxide, which
gives it the distinct odor and taste. These sulfuric compounds are similar to compounds
produced by the bacteria that cause bad breath. The worst part is that the smell of garlic
may stay in your lungs for 24 to 48 hours after you consume it. Luckily, there are several easy ways to prevent
or solve the problem of lingering garlic odor. 1. Apple Apples contain oxidizing enzymes, which is
why they change color when cut and left exposed to the air for some time. These same enzymes can help neutralize garlic
odor and get rid of garlic breath. When you�ve got garlic breath, eat an apple
to get rid of it. Also, drinking a glass of fresh apple juice
will do the trick. 2. Milk Milk is another natural ingredient that provides
a very easy way to neutralize garlic breath. Simply sip a glass of milk to reduce garlic
breath effectively. 3. Mint Leaves Mint leaves have a significant deodorizing
effect on volatile garlic compounds. The chlorophyll in mint can help mask the
garlic smell. Chew on some fresh mint leaves and you will
have minty fresh breath. Crush mint leaves with your hands and rub
mint juice on your hands to get rid of garlic odor lingering on your hands. 4. Parsley Just like mint, parsley is another herb that
can successfully combat garlic breath and help remove any odor on your hands. The chlorophyll in it absorbs odors and helps
keep you smelling fresh. 5. Stainless Steel It may sound strange, but using stainless
steel is one of the best ways to combat garlic odor on your hands as well as in your mouth. Rub your hands against a stainless steel surface
for a few minutes, then rinse your hands with water and notice the smell has disappeared. For bad breath, run a small stainless steel
object (like a spoon) all around the inside of your mouth, including on your entire tongue
and the sides. 6. Lemon Another good kitchen ingredient to deal with
garlic odor is lemon. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to a cup of
water and mix well. Use this solution to rinse your mouth thoroughly
to reduce the garlic odor. Sip a glass of freshly made lemon water after
eating any food that has a strong garlic flavor. For your hands, rub a lemon rind or lemon
juice on them to get the garlic smell off. 7. Cardamom The strong aroma of cardamom can help mask
the smell of garlic breath. It will even add a nice smell to your breath. Chew some green cardamom seeds after enjoying
any food that contains lots of garlic. Also, you can drink a glass of milk with some
cardamom powder mixed in it. 8. Baking Soda When it comes any kind of bad odor, baking
soda is a safe ingredient to try. Mix 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and sea
salt in a glass of warm water. Use it to rinse your mouth once or twice. For your hands, mix together 1 tablespoon
each of baking soda and lemon juice. Apply it on your hands. Leave it on for a couple of minutes, then
wash it off with water. Also, you can sprinkle baking soda on both
your palms, rub them together for a minute and then rinse them off with plain water. 9. Olive Oil If you are worried about the garlic smell
lingering on your hands after handling garlic, try olive oil next time. Apart from olive oil, coconut oil and palm
oil also work fine. 10. Toothpaste Another good home remedy for removing garlic
odor from your mouth or hands is toothpaste. After eating a garlic-rich meal, brushing
your teeth with any mint-flavored toothpaste goes a long way in not only getting rid of
the garlic smell in your mouth but also the taste. To get rid of the smell on your hands, put
a little toothpaste on them and rub gently. Then wash your hands with your regular soap. Additional Tips To get rid of garlic breath, you can drink
some green tea or cinnamon tea. For your hands, rub some coffee beans or grounds
between your hands until the smell is gone. If you don�t have any cuts on your hands,
rub some table salt between your hands, then rinse them under running water after peeling
or chopping garlic. To prevent getting garlic odor on your hands,
wear latex gloves whenever you�re chopping garlic.
