How to get the smell of crawfish off my hands?

Asked by LazyMe10 (508points) March 27th, 2016 from iPhone

So, since its now a new day I can say yesterday. But yesterday and the day before I ate crawfish with my friends. For my friends dad cooked a lot of it. The thing is, the smell of crawfish is on my hands. Usually the smell goes away after a few washes with soap in the since. But the smell still lingers! Does anyone know how to get the smell off my hands?

Try baking soda.

Squeeze some fresh lemon and rub the juice on your hands well.
“Scratch” the squeezed lemon rind/pulp with your finger nails.

Take a nice long shower, and wash your hair really well a couple of times – the hot water, soap and hair will clean under your nails well.

By all means, use @2davidc8‘s baking soda, too.

Lemon juice.

Atlantic City is a movie that addresses this question.

I’d use a touch of lemon juice. I have an ancient bottle of Realemon in the refrigerator that I use for “industrial” purposes such as this.

Another vote for lemon juice. But just make sure that creepy Burt Lancaster isn’t stationed outside your window watching you :)

Rub your hands on Stainless Steel, a sink, flatware, they even make a cake-shaped piece for this purpose. Just wash your hands using stainless steel as the soap.
