toothpaste is great stuff. it will also take the garlic/onion smell off your hands after you've been handling them.

I wear gloves when I work with silicone because I know how hard it is to get the stuff - and the greasy residue - off my hands. I'll have to remember the toothpaste tip in case I ever accidently get some on me.

BTW, Colgate toothpaste is a great for filling small holes in dorm room walls!
