we've all heard it: "EWWWW!! your hands smell like fish!". if you cook, you may notice the lingering smell of onions or peppers on your hands after cutting or just handling them. you wash your hands and the smell is still there, or perhaps you use lemon juice so now you have lemon fish smelling hands. i don't know about you, but my wife really gives me "the 'ol stink eye" after i've been fishing and handled a fish, and after i fillet one for dinner. she loves to eat them, but the smell on the hands isn't her favorite. i've tried all sorts of tricks and methods to rid my hands of the smell but haven't been completely effective at getting rid of the smells..............until now. i was in a local shop that sells lotion, massage oil, candles, and soaps looking for a valentine's day "little something". all of it is made by them locally and being as how i was lost and confused with all the different smells and items the lady gave me a rundown on what all of the different products where. then it happened. she was giving me a rundown of what the stuff was, and i asked about 1 particularly odd looking little "block". she said it's "coffee soap" and will take the smell of just about anything "natural" right off without harsh chemicals. si i picked up a couple to try out. the stuff works wonders! got lucky yesterday and had my hands on a couple steelhead. came home and the wife gave me the "wrinkle nose" when she smelled my hands. so i broke out the little bar of soap and gave it a try. it worked!! no more smell i could detect, and no soap smell either. the soap doesn't have hardly any smell so it wasn't a perfume to cover the smells, just the unique action of the soap. later that night i chopped veggies including onions and peppers, and it worked on them too.

so take a look at the local "smell bad shop":rolleyes: if you have one, and see if they make this stuff. it was under $4 and well worth it.

the coffee soap i have is made here local. the coffee is from a roaster just down the street actually. i have no idea where else it might be made.

they have a web site: http://www.seasidescents.com/

just email them (or call them) and tell them you want the coffee soap. it's $3 a bar. they will set it up so you can use paypal.



as for contaminated flies...... i've been told lemon joy, but i have never tried it.
