How to get the smell of hydrogen sulfide off your hands?

I was messing around with silver bullion to perform the reaction: Hydrogen Sulfide + SIlver = Silver Sulfide + Hydrogen

And the smell of the hydrogen sulfide wont come off even after letting air dry from acetic acid rinsing. HALP MEH

If it is not coming off with repeated washing and scrubbing then use a scented soap.... and keep washing your hands regularly over the next few days with plenty of scrubbing and scented soap. Take longer per wash than usual and do it more regularly.... and use the scented soap. It will go eventually. Maybe wear some better gloves next time?

If vinegar didn't work, I wonder if lemon juice would have a nicer smell?
