Trick for getting rid of smells in the kitchen

This is a very simple trick and you all might know it already, but just in case you don't here's how to get rid of food smells on your hands.

Sometimes after preparing strong-smelling food like onions, garlic, meat, etc. you wash your hands and the odor seems to linger. So you wash your hands again, and again and lest you become Lady Macbeth, muttering "Out damned spot," all you need to do is run your hands under water while rubbing some stainless steel. Grab a spoon, turn on the faucet and run that metal all over your hands. I'm sure it all boils down to chemistry, but all I know is that it works.

Voila! or should I say Poof! the smell is gone.

I have a little bar of stainless 'soap' and it works! I don't know how, either, but it does.
