HELP! How to get poop smell off my hands!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've tried scrubbing my hands with soap, sugar, & lemon, & even olive oil...to no avail. How do I get that smell off my hands after picking up a poopy egg or when it gets on my hands during coop cleaning?

I have a very strong gag reflex & this does NOT help!

I do believe the smell of chicken poop is worse than pig poo... and THAT is awful!

We do this after handling fish and it gets rid of the smell instantly rub your hands all over the sinks faucet if it is stainless steel.  Works for fish may work for chicken poo.  Wear gloves when out in the coop.

Fake lavender smells worse than chicken poo IMO) all over your hands. That's what I do. You'll want to wash your hands afterwards because lavender is strong, but it's better than poo!
