It is not easy to get rid of fish odour, and washing your hands with ordinary soap and water won’t be enough to remove the odour. There are some commercial products specifically designed to remove fish odour, but they can be expensive. Instead of purchasing such an expensive product, use some of the suggestions below to remove fish odour from your hands next time you prepare fish.
- Use mild dish detergent and sugar to remove fish odour. Mix 2 tablespoons of plain sugar and some mild dish detergent into a cup or directly apply the ingredients to the palm of your hand. Scrub your hands for 2 minutes and rinse with tap water . Repeat the process several times until the fish odour is gone. This solution can also be used to exfoliate the dry skin on your hands.
- Use lemon juice to wash your hands. Squeeze a lemon into a plastic bowl or any other suitable container, then pour the lemon juice over your hands and let it sit for 2 minutes before rinsing with plain water. Avoid using lemon juice if you have small cuts on your hands because it will burn.
