A professional chef has shared a little-known way to get rid of chili residue left on the fingertips during cooking.

Kelly Scott said her mind was “stunned” after discovering the nifty hack that only requires paper towels and olive oil.

All chili peppers contain the chemical compound capsaicin which is the source of the fiery heat, but water does not affect the burning sensation.

She tested the theory by rubbing her eye and said she felt ‘nothing’

Kelly admitted that she always accidentally touched her eyes after chopping chili or hot peppers, causing a painful burning sensation.

But now she won’t have this common problem thanks to the simple hack.

“I just learned the best cooking hack that literally blew my mind,” Kelly said in the clip.

“If you ever slice jalapeños or spicy serrano peppers, you’ll want to see this. When I cut peppers, I always have spicy pepper hands.

“Even when you wash it, the water seems to move it a bit, you know how to eat something spicy, water makes it worse?” Same with cutting [chilli] and wash your hands. And I always forget and touch my eyes and it burns.’

In the clip, she sliced ​​up two jalapeños and then tried it by adding a few drops of olive oil to a paper towel.

She then wiped the infected hand with the olive oil.

“Apparently it picks up all the capsaicin, which is what’s spicy,” Kelly said, really testing the theory by touching her eye.

“Okay, I’m going to test it by rubbing my eyes,” she said, adding that she felt, “Nothing.”

‘It functions!’ she said.
