Do your hands smell like onions or garlic after you’ve cooked up a storm in the kitchen? While it can seem like no amount of handwashing can get rid of the smell, one kitchen condiment can work wonders: mustard. Grab a jar of the yellow stuff from the fridge or open a packet from the junk drawer and rub on your hands. It works for two reasons: The vinegar in mustard helps break down smells, and the mustard seed itself is a rubefacient, which means it causes dilation of capillaries when it comes in contact with skin. This combination makes mustard a naturally amazing deodorizer.
