Top Review by Doug Thompson
Concerning handling chili peppers, it really is unnecessary to use gloves. What I have done for years is wash my hands with a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent and water immediately after handling the peppers. This technique has never failed to remove the capsaicin-bearing oil. Regular hand soaps are not designed to remove oil and grease in the same manner as detergents and are definitely not as effective in this application.
