Recently I heard that you can use coffee grounds to remove the smell from your hands - we don't drink coffee here so I bought a container of coffee and tried it. Sure enough it worked.
I figured I could get more, so I researched making my own scrub and thought you might like to make it too. It works great!
- Ground coffee - I'd imagine you could use your left over grounds...
- Liquid hand soap
- Olive oil
- Mixing bowl & something to stir with
Step 1 - Measure out enough coffee to fill your jar about 80% full... And poor it in your bowl.
Step 2 - Add the hand soap and olive oil. I was making enough scrub to fill 3 jars, so I used about a cup of soap and 1/4 cup of olive oil. You can adjust it however you like, you might want more soap for cleaning or more olive oil for moisturizing.
You might find that you need to add more liquid, just keep stirring it 'till the coffee is all completely coated in the liquids.
Step 3 - Then simply fill your jars.
Then when you've that garlic smell on your hands, simply open the jar, scoop some out and watch your hands as you normally would.
There you go! No more stinky hands - and I've got to say, the scrub feels great to wash your hands with.
