    [​IMG] My right hand stinks sooooo bad. I just got home from work to check my eggs in the bator and one had oozed/foamed, so I picked it up and sniffed it. WHEW! That alone should have told me to take it outside and throw it as far as possible, right? Noooo, I had to take it to the sink and crack it. Now my kitchen stinks. And my hand. And I cannot get rid of the smell.

    I have heard that white vinegar is good at neutralizing odors. Could be worth a try.

    Find anything stainless steel, and scrub your hands hard with soap and the stainless steel. It absorbs odors, I have a little stainless steel fish I use after peeling garlic and onions and such.

    Just tape that hand to your face. After about 2 hours of total immersion into the smell, you won't even notice it. Or you will. At least having your hand taped to your face will give people around you something to laugh at for a while...

    one of these should work:

    Stainless steel sink (like previously posted)


    Lemon Juice

    Peroxide mixed with baking soda and dish soap .. we used to use this mix on skunked dogs when I was a groomer.. for dogs it was 1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
    1/4 cup of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap (we used Ivory)

    [​IMG] ew! cut it off!!!

    [​IMG] JK! I know, it is THE ABSOLUTE WINNER over anything stinky. I had to vomit, [​IMG] open up the whole house, vomit, light some candles, vomit, remove the egg, vomit, [​IMG] clean out the incubator, vomit, put everything back together, vomit some more, and take a shower.

    It went away after that. [​IMG]
