Very Important Public Warning!

On Friday night, I went to my friend Mindy's house for dinner. I cut up fresh jalapeno peppers for a salad. After I finished washing & cutting the peppers, I washed my hands. About 10 minutes later, I rubbed my eyes and the oil from the pepper got in my eyes. It was the worst eye burn/irritation I have ever experienced! I had to immediately wash my face with soap and water for the burning to at least subside a little. Hours later, I touched my lips & my lips started burning.

Warning: Never cut up fresh jalapeno pepper and touch your face. Your face will literally burn even after you wash your hands!

Girl, you crack me up. Also, don't put salt in an open wound. It can burn too.
