Stainless steel soap
Stainless steel soap is a piece of stainless steel, in the form of a soap bar or other hand-held shape. Its purported purpose is to neutralize or reduce strong odors from the hands, such as those from handling garlic, onion, durian or fish.
While stainless steel soap is sold by reputable sources, scientific evidence of its efficacy appears lacking. One hypothesis is that these soaps work by binding the sulfur compounds found in substances such as onions and garlic. A company based in Solingen, Germany, obtained a patent for its version of a stainless steel soap.
