Chili is a bold, full-flavored dish flavored with hot peppers, spices and herbs. While there are hundreds of different chili recipes, most of them contain black or pinto beans, meat and vegetables as main ingredients. The hot red chile pepper is used in many versions of the dish to add a spicy kick. Depending on the amount of chile pepper used, the spiciness can be overbearing and cause minor burning of the mouth or skin.
Things You'll Need
- Dish soap
- Isopropyl alcohol
Wash your hands with dish soap under a cool faucet. Remove as much of the chili sauce as you can.
Pour a tablespoon of salt into a cupped hand and mix with water for a paste-like consistency. This mixture removes any chile pepper oils that may have seeped into your skin.
Rub the salt and water paste thoroughly over your hands, forearms or any other region that came in contact with the chili. Rinse off with cool water.
Splash a small amount of isopropyl alcohol onto your hands to remove any remaining chile pepper oil.
