  • USA’s Kelly Scott posted a video that stunned thousands
  • Instead of washing her hands, she lathers olive oil on a paper towel

  • Kelly said the hack “worked” because she felt “nothing.”

A professional chef has shared a little-known way to remove chili residue left on your fingertips during cooking.

Kelly Scott said she was “blown away” after discovering the helpful hack, which requires just paper towels and olive oil.

Instead of washing your hands after touching a hot chilli, the US chef recommended rubbing olive oil onto your fingertips and skin instead.

All chilies contain the chemical compound capsaicin, which is the source of the fiery heat, but water doesn’t affect the burning sensation.

Kelly Scott said she was “blown away” after discovering how to remove chili residue left on fingertips when cooking. Instead of washing your hands after touching a hot chilli, the US chef instead recommended rubbing olive oil on your fingertips and hands. She put the theory to the test by rubbing her eyes and saying she felt “nothing”.

Kelly admitted that she always accidentally touches her eyes after slicing chili or hot peppers, which leaves her with the painful burn.

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

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

“If you’ve ever sliced ​​jalapeños or hot serrano peppers, this is what you’re going to want to see. When I cut peppers, my hands always have hot peppers.

“Even if you wash it it seems it kind of moves the water around, you know how to eat something spicy, water makes it worse? Same with cutting [chilli] and wash hands. And I always forget and touch my eyes and it burns.’

In the clip, she sliced ​​two jalapeños and then tried it, putting a few drops of olive oil on a paper towel.

Next, she wiped the contaminated hand with the olive oil.

“Apparently it’s picking up all the capsaicin, the thing that’s pungent,” Kelly said, really testing the theory by continuing to touch her eye.

“Okay, I’ll test it by rubbing my eyes,” she said, then adding that she felt, “Nothing.”

‘It works out!’ She said.

The video has since been viewed more than 26,000 times, with many thanking Kelly for sharing the tip, while others provided their own chili-slicing cooking tricks.

“Definitely use, thanks,” one person wrote, while another added, “Baking soda works too.”

“Lemon juice works too,” added a third.

Another joked: “I use gloves and ski goggles.”
