The cat is out of the bag, or rather the Fish, when it comes to nifty thrifty kitchen gadgets. I recently received this unusual object, from a dear friend of mine. At first I was totally confused. I even tried to open it, thinking there had to be something useful and remarkable inside. Was it a bottle opener? Or a refrigerator magnet? What about a cocktail ice cube? Nope. It’s kinda like assembling a coffee table from IKEA. If all else fails, read the package instructions. This quirky little fish gadget turned out to be invaluable. It’s purpose is to eliminate strong odors from smelly foods like onions, garlic, and you guessed it…fish. Too often we rinse our hands with soap, lemon juice, or vinegar without success. Most times the odor is heightened rather than diminished due to the sulfur molecules. Evidently stainless steel is a negative-charged metal that, when combined with the positive-charged amino acids in cold water, will remove irritating odors. I know this to be true because I put it to the test. I was chopping raw onions to toss onto a steaming bowl of homemade chili, so naturally I scooped up the onions with my hands. Afterwards my hands smelled pungent, like onions. I turned on the faucet, placed the fish in the palm of my hands, and vigorously rubbed together under the stream of cold water for about 15 seconds. It miraculously worked. Poof, like magic the odor had disappeared. Thanks, Judy. Your gift is pure genius.
