Bad smells be gone!

I have a confession to make.
For the last decade, I have been cutting onions and garlic with a knife and fork in order to avoid stinky hands. My skin just sucks up those acids and my hands wind up reeking for weeks after and... I don't like it, m'kay?
This was the topic of some lively conversation at the pub a few weeks ago, and some very good friends infomed me that if I rubbed my hands on some stainless steel after cutting up any members of the onion family, no smells would remain.
I just tried it tonight and IT WORKS.
This has changed my life. I can now slice garlic and dice onion with reckless abandon.

Does anyone out there know why this works? I NEED TO KNOW.
