This soap is simply a piece of stainless steel and has the surprising ability to neutralize or reduce strong odors from hands, such as from handling garlic, onion, durian or fish. It’s really simple, you just need to rub your hands with it. But how can that be ?

Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of satisfying scientific data that explains the ability of stainless steel to reduce odor. Anne Marie Helmenstine, a chemistry expert tested it herself and wrote a possible explanation about it in this website. The stainless steel soap helps diminishing the scent but only if it’s from onions, garlic or fish. This can probably be explained by the ability of stainless steel to attract and bind the sulfur from onion, garlic or fish. These compounds are responsible for burning  your eyes while cutting onions and also for their characteristic scent. If the sulfur compounds bind to the steel, then the odor is removed from your finger.
