Rubbing your hands and fingers on stainless steel (like the sink faucet) removes the garlic smell, so maybe you can try rubbing the pestle on stainless steel. The other methods involving a rub of vinegar, lemons, and baking soda aren't going to remove garlic from wood. You'll probably need to just wash it a few times, or try a soak of oxyclean.

I'm a barbarian, I've no dishwasher...
Nothing worked, this pestle id definitely possessed by evil garlic demons! OK, I'm buying another one, then I'll use one for garlic sauces and the other for non garlic sauce.

I was wondering if, when the pestle is new, a coating of oil might seal the surface and prevent it from picking up the smell?

«Fully vitrified porcelain mortar & pestle head»!!!

Thanks justplainbill

And thanks Aunt Bea for your "coating" advice, but I think I will go with this "vitrified porcelain" solution. It sounds good.

Good luck. The size #6 has a generous 1 litre working capacity.
We just made some avocado salsa with ours this morning.
