  • You have to rinse and rinse. The compound Capsasim, is very sticky and it will take a long time to get out. Depending on the type of pepper, and the concentration of the compound, you may need to seek medical intervention.

  • Rinse the outside with MILK! It will neutralize the oil. If it is inside your eye you'd better call your doctor.

  • Rinse. I put baggies over my hands when I cut them to avoid that.

  • rince them out with water... it will stay on your hands too. Be sure to not touch anything. I have done that making salsa before.
