Gadget of the Week - Kikkerland Magic Soap

Stainless steel, soap - three words you might not have expected to ever see used in one sentence. But, Kikkerland’s Magic Soap will quickly change that, and could just change your perspective on what makes soap, soap!

This kitchen gadget could be a lifesaver for anyone who wants to keep their hands clean and odor-free, especially while in the middle of mise en place for a particularly pungent meal.

Aimed at those who are sensitive to strong scents, the stainless steel Magic Soap aims to neutralize the smell of hard-to-rid odors from tasks like chopping onions and garlic.

Its look is sleek and spherical (so you might have to explain to guests that the soap is indeed soap). It looks more like a decorative addition to a kitchen countertop than the sudsy and foamy norm you might be used to.

To properly use and get the most out of the Magic Soap, users should wash and scrub their hands using the gadget and cold water for 30 seconds, which will help to neutralize odors.

To get your hands on Kikkerland’s Magic Soap, you can visit retailers such as your nearest Bed, Bath, and Beyond; it’s also available on their website for $7.99.
