Stainless steel soap

Example of a "bar" of stainless steel soap.

Stainless steel soap is a piece of stainless steel, in the form of a soap bar or other hand-held shape. Its purported purpose is to neutralize or reduce strong odors from the hands, such as those from handling garlic, onion, durian or fish.[1]

While stainless steel soap is sold by reputable sources,[2][3] scientific evidence of its efficacy appears lacking.[4][5] One hypothesis is that these soaps work by binding the sulfur compounds found in substances such as onions and garlic.[1] A company based in Solingen, Germany, obtained a patent for its version of a stainless steel soap.[6]
