HOW TO GET HOT PEPPER OIL OFF YOUR HANDS:
First I lathered with soap. You’ll want to use one that will REALLY cut through the oils. Rinse it off with HOT water (the key is to open the pores in your skin so that the capsaicin can come OUT). I’m gonna keep it real with ya. This step will be VERY difficult since barely tepid water will feel like molten lava from hell.
I followed this with a heavy drizzle of olive oil on my hands and rubbed it in well. I rubbed · and rubbed some more · before grabbing the sink brush and [painfully] scrubbing away the pepper oils from my uber delicate skin tissue. This is the point in the process where I was seriously considering a trip to the hospital or Antartica.
The process was repeated at least 6 times and I could slowly feel the pain subside.
I literally fell asleep the moment my head hit the pillow that night. It worked. I couldn’t believe it.
I’d like to add, one of our readers said to try Vicks Vapor Rub. Let me know if that works for you
