Funky But Really Useful Household Thingy

Post image for Funky But Really Useful Household Thingy

stainless steel soap thingyAbout the De Odor Works “thingy” — it starts with Home Economics 1-0-1: rubbing smelly hands (wet) on a stainless steel sink eradicates odors like fish, garlic, mildewy-rubber-glove-insides. Yup, true. But it only works with stainless steel. If you have teenagers or other smelly critters in your household, unfortunately you cannot rub their entire bodies inside your sink, so… RUN, don’t walk and get one of these.

This post is an unpaid product endorsement for a thingy I got for free.  I use it every time I shower.

This soap-sized stainless steel bar from De Odor Works and is sold online. The PR agency sent it to me as a blogger, and she knew my policy: I never make promises to write about things. I already understood the concept, didn’t care one way or another until she said the magic words: “sweaty chef.” As in: this isn’t just for hands.

Warning: the website for De Odor Works is clinical and graphic. This thingy is for the entire body, so you are going to see uses in illustrations with body parts, OK? They are showing you exactly the way to use it.

Consider these scenarios: stinky teens. Smelly soccer kids. Yucky feet. Hot flash frets. If it weren’t for the fact that our mucho-smelly pug dog is no longer with us, I swear it would have worked on him, too.  So, my thingy lives in my shower (because my kitchen sink is stainless steel). And it really works.

Holly, if you click right on the name of the company in the post De Odor Works, it takes you to their online site for purchase. Otherwise try Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I have a stainless steel sink and never knew I could use it to get rid of hand odors. Thanks for the tip. I wonder why it works.

I may have to revise my list of “10 Essential Kitchen Gadgets” – and with two “smelly” teenage boys I probably need one of these too!!
