Timer Tip #1 - Lemony-fresh

To banish strong odors on your hands from cutting up onions and garlic, try rubbing a cut up lemon on your fingers and massaging in the juice. Hopefully you haven't nicked yourself while chopping said onions and garlic or this may sting a bit.  Pat dry and your hands are odor free!  If you don't have any lemons, you can keep a soap on hand that contains lemon extracts.  My mom turned me on to this one made by C.O. Bigelow Chemists.  If I had a blindfold on I'd think there was a lemon right under my nose!  It smells so good!


  1. Bath & Body Works carries it. It's a little more than you might pay for hand soap, so I just use it when needed.
