You're cooking with garlic and your neighbour knows it. You've eaten garlic bread and the guy you share your cubicle with knows it. You eat raw garlic daily to help fight off infections and bacteria and everyone around you knows it. Garlic has a strong odour that makes your home stink and causes bad breath. And, after eating large amounts of garlic, your sweat begins to smell like it. Fortunately, a couple home remedies exist to help minimise the smell so you don't stink like garlic after eating it.

  1. 1

    Wash your hands and dry them after preparing and working with garlic. Rub them on stainless steel, such as your faucet. Bars of stainless steel soaps are sold for this purpose, too. It works because the sulphur that smells in garlic is attracted to the stainless steel.

  2. 2

    Chew on parsley to get rid of the garlic breath after eating raw garlic. A few sprigs should do the trick.

  3. 3

    Eat a handful of fennel seeds. Fennel seeds neutralise the smell of garlic and help reduce the amount of garlic odour in your sweat and rid you of garlic breath.
