How long does it take one to truly learn to not touch one’s face, eyes, nose, lips after seeding and/or cutting up Serrano peppers no matter HOW MANY times one washes one’s hands??

I have been cooking since I was 14 years old. So, if I use the new core curriculum math to figure this, that means 14 years of age minus the 17 years I’ve celebrated the anniversary of my 29th birthday divided by 7 because I feel like a big shout out to dog years squared equals 40 bagillion!!!

Which is STILL not enough time…….apparently.

I’ll be using the bidet as an eyebath.

  1. Wear disposable gloves. The chemicals released from the peppers cant go through. Most pharmacies carry them and always cut spicy peppers last.

    1. Okay, intellectually I know this. I usually forget to buy them. I actually HAVE a box of 5 pair of disposable rubber gloves on the fridge right now that I bought for working on a project (read: cleaning the mildew off the ceiling from the leaky roof.) Apparently, I have the short-term memory of a sieve OR I was so damn hungry that I couldn’t see past that spicy omelette I was craving for breakfast. Maybe next time. For now, the swelling is going down as long as I don’t keep touching my face.
