How do you get the juice/oil, whatever off your hands after you chop up jalapenos? I've washed my hands several times, and it still is on my fingers. I can't take out my contacts, LOL!!!

I always use gloves or hold it in a towel or with a piece of plastic. I've even been known to pull out my food processor for things like hot peppers and onions.
Try lots of soap and water and then wash your hands in some "Milk of Magnesia" The MoM helps to neutralize the acids that cause the burning. It's also the best remedy for superficial skin burns.
If you don't have Milk of Magnesia, try washing your hands with plain non flavoured yogurt.
I've never hear of using MOM on burns, but it makes sense. Thanks for the tip!
