Brazilian coffee grinds absorb fish smell off your hands. I am a sushi chef and I need that soap every day. The soap itself has exfoliating qualities and does not disintegrate quickly when wet! I recommend this soap for everyone who cooks fish, garlic, or onions. My staff has asked for more bars. I had to buy 20 bars at a time, and they are all gone. It is beautiful to look at as well as fabulous to use.
