    The thing to remind people is that stainless steel soaps are odor eaters and NOT for getting rid of bacteria. They work by transferring the smell of the metal to your body. Rubbing your hands on any stainless steel thing, even your metal sink will do the same thing. Just don't replace your regular soap with it.

      "transferring the smell of the metal to your body" what? Why is this pinned? Why did almost 4,000 idiots give you a thumbs up for that little gem? Do I even have to explain why that is complete nonsense? Honestly the science behind why this may work is seriously lacking and anecdotal evidence is about as good as it gets. The most plausible explanation is that the stainless steel reacts with one or more offending compounds (like Allicin in Garlic) and they bond with it, and off your hands. That being said there are as many people who claim this whole thing is baloney as there are those who swear by it so take pretty much anything anyone says with a grain of salt. In any case, "transferring the smell of the metal to your body" makes absolutely no sense—we're trying to get rid of smells from our body, not introduce new ones.

      Very true, I couldn't agree more. That said, I've always used a stainless steel soup spoon or butter knife to remove the odor from my hands after handling garlic and onions, been using that for years, grandma trick :)

      I was getting ready to hate your videos right off the bat but I'm happy to say I enjoyed this one. You brought all the issues I would have had to attention.

      Great reviews- you had some of the same objections I would and the products seemed to exceed them.

              you should of compared the steel soap to just rinsing your hands with just the water without the bar as it could of been just the water removing the smell by itself

                  The steel soap, I'm just wondering, even tho it removes smell, what about bacterias you get from a trip to the toilet? You usually use soap to disinfect your hands.

                      Your steel soap experiment makes no sense. Why wouldn't you test one hand with the bar and one hand with just plain water? How can you possibly know if it wasn't just the water + friction from scrubbing taking the smell away?

                      • MississippiFishingMomma

                        The bar is pretty cool. I do alot of cleaning fish, I just use the side of my sink while washing my hands and it takes the smell away too.

                                I love my steel soap, I have a similar stand for my phone and like it. I got straws that were part of a mystery bag and I can’t give them away, people say they leave a metal taste. I don’t use straws so I’m not interested.

                                          The steel will also work in your mouth for garlic breath. And you can put lemon juice in a pickle jar to get rid of the pickle smell. If you're like me and re-use jars.

                                              for the straw demonstration, you really only needed the cups themselves, but your swamp water mix from demonstrating was hilarious

                                                  Just for people complaining about his onion smell acting:

                                                  I FUCKING LOVE onion, raw, cooked, whatever.

                                                  However although the smell is not neccesarilly appealing to me it DOES in fact smell like B.O from the armpit, in the same way doritos smell like stinky feet!

Before starbucks was a worldwide chain, they had only two sizes: a 8oz “Short” and the 12oz “Tall”. Soon, Starbucks realized people wanted more liquid, so they introduced their 16oz “Grande” and 24/20 oz “Venti” sizes. The 8oz “short” size was never officially dropped, and can still be ordered, but is usually only used for non-full cup orders, like “John Wayne’s” or just espresso shots.

So the scent you are getting are oils and dirt from your hands. You can test this by washing coins with latex gloves on then smell the coins
