If you have a stainless steel sink, just rub your fingertips over it. You can also buy a stainless thing that looks like a bar of soap - kitchenware stores generally have them.

The back (dull side) of a stainless steel knife blade also works! I typically rinse my chef's knife immediately after chopping garlic, to get the sticky stuff off, and make a point of rubbing my fingertips carefully over the broad sides of the blade at the same time. Works like a charm . . . . ;o)

Old fashioned (Morton) table salt works well, too.

What Antonia said works but any stainless steel surface will work the same. I prefer to use the side of my stainless steel sink.
