Stainless Steel Soap Bar

Stainless Steel Soap Bar

I have always been curious about the stainless steel soap bar. For those of you who are not familiar, the stainless steel magic soap bar works to neutralize the strong odors that are present from handling ingredients like onion, garlic, or even fish.

I like a good cooking tool but most kitchen gadgets I stay away from. And this one seems pretty gimmicky. Well, ladies and gentlemen, turns out that the magical rub away bar works! I got my hands on one of these recently as I had a small balance on my kitchen store gift card. I thought, worst case scenario I have a cool looking stainless steel paper weight for my office. But it turns out that the magic soap does remove kitchen odor from hands.

All you need to do is wash your hand under cold running water and rub your smelly fingers on the stainless steel soap, and presto! It's pretty darn close to a 100% removal which is amazing. Even better, it never wears out. About the only additional cleaning necessary is scrubbing under your fingernails with a nail brush!

Well worth the investment in my humble opinion.

    Guess what everyone’s getting in my family for X-mas this year?

    @nicmcc Is it already that time of the year to start thinking about presents?! Now that I have looked around, I like the tear drop shaped soap, muy sessy.

    What a crazy gadget! I’m definitely jumping on the Christmas gift train too. Thanks for the info!

    These work great. But I keep wanting to make a robot who dropped the soap joke.

    Not take the amusement away from a new kitchen gadget … But, you can achieve the same effect from a stainless serving spoon, or any other stainless whatnot you have stashed away in your utensil drawer.

    Thing is, it IS a gimmick. There is nothing magical about it. Any piece of stainless steel will do the same thing, even a spoon.

    I wonder it this soap also takes other foul smells away…?

    @Blake @ Steve
    Point taken regarding the stainless steel spoon. Good thing I like the shape and the looks of it! Matches with other things that are stainless and chrome in my kitchen! :)

    How is your new place? Studio set up? Are you growing a garden yet?

    Are you sure it was a robot and not you? :)

    It may take away other foul smells but but it will never clean up your dirty mind!

    I always thought these were a joke gift. I’m glad to hear it’s not a scam.

    I’ve always rubbed my hands on the stainless steel sink… but I’m happy to know if I ever have another kind of sink, I’ll have a smell-eraser replacement!

    @robin Wow, to think I how long I have been missing out on this. Stainless steel sink in front of my face all this time!

    Do these actually work? A family friend just gave me one of these as a gift, because I’m always cooking. She said that it would help me get rid of the “Pepper Smell” because I’m always cutting up Jalapeños & other peppers….

    To be honest, I haven’t even taken it out of the plastic wrapping yet.

    @Jeff – I have a box of food grade rubber gloves stashed under my kitchen sink. We use a lot of spicy peppers around the house and we don’t want accidents to happen you know :D

    I’ve never seen anything like that before. If I ever have stinky hands though — I’ll know what to get : ]

    @Jenna Stinky hands, stinky fingers, it seems to work well :)

    This is so a scam. You are spending anywhere from $4 to $20 for a piece of junk steel that has been cleaned up and polished. there has been an interview with professors from colleges who have confirmed that stainless steel does nothing to remove smells or else we would not use it to cook with. Think about it!

    @Sharon Peters – Really? Have you tried rubbing stainless steel spoon on our fingers?
