Removing Capsaicin from the Hands PDF Print E-mail


What’s the best way to get the capsaicin from habanero peppers off your hands? My husband decided to deseed and de-membrane without gloves when he was making his sauce. His hands have been "burning" for several hours. Any help?


Hello Edna:

Have him "wash" his hands in vegetable oil for several minutes, then rewash them with a strong detergent. That should help.
