Hand scrub to get rid of nasty scents

Posted by Hen on May 28, 2012 in Health & Beauty |

So it’s been awhile. I’m not very good at keeping up with blogs as you can see. I have to admit that over the past few weeks there have been a few of those, “Oh I should blog about that!” moments but it always ended up as a, “I’ll do it later” and then later never came. Well… you know how it is.

I decided today that I would blog about a little mixture I made before it turned into a later that never came. This scrub was made to get rid of that nasty rubber glove smell that lingers on my hands after washing the dishes. You see, up until this year I have always washed dishes with bare hands because I hated that rubber smell that gets stuck on your hands afterwards. It wasn’t much of a problem but this winter my hands would get so dry and cracked that I gave in and decided to use gloves (for some reason it never occurs me to use the dishwasher until its too late). But now I have that nasty rubber smell problem to deal with. The smell just takes forever to wear off.

Well awhile ago I remember reading about a soap someone made with coffee grounds to get garlic and onion smell off their hands and I figure I could make something similar but not a soap (I’m no soap maker). So this is what I came up with and it worked great!

Coffee hand scrub

Just mix equal parts coffee grounds and brown sugar and put it into a jar by your sink. Pour a little into your palm and scrub your hands with it. I used a vanilla flavored coffee and it left a nice vanilla-y coffee scent on my hand that is not strong at all.

I also added sea salt to mine but I think it made it too rough. So I’m thinking I might add oil to my mixture to make it smoother and moisturizing. I want to go with coconut oil though I would rather use something that stays liquid. So maybe olive oil instead? I do think it’d be a great idea to use another one of those flatter mason jars I hold my deodorant in and mix the scrub with coconut oil, then I could use it like a lotion?

Also here’s a sneak peak at my next post: Infinity Dress How To (sort of)
