Secrets of Success

Handling Fish



If. like me, you can't stand the smell of fish on your hands, try using the very thin gloves supermarket workers wear when handling cheese, sliced meats, etc. You still have enough manipulation, but your hands don't suffer and you can throw the gloves away afterwards.

  • Since I love to fish but don't like the smell on my hands after cleaning them I have another hit to help. When washing your hands pour a bit of white vinegar in the palm of your hand and continue washing them. It might take a second washing but there is not a smell any more. I have used this for years and I even have a bottle in my camping supplies. - by FVHORVATH
  • My DH came back from a fishing trip and there is a tote full of fish on ice, right now, waiting for him to clean them.

    But I get the job of packing them up for the freezer.

    Thank you for the suggestion of wearing gloves.

    I also appreciate FVHORVATH's suggestion of washing fishing hands with white vinegar.

    I am a big fan of the many uses of vinegar.
