Yep, they'll let you know. One of the guys in the shop wanted to make a batch of jalapeno jelly one time, so he had to scorch/peel like a pound. He did, and wore rubber gloves. But later that nite, he forgot and took his soft contact lenses out. The next morning he came in late, eyes all red and he had to throw the lenses away. The pepper oil went right into them. The jelly, BTW was super! :)

oh my god..I can imagine a burn like that!
I live in a country where peppers are part of our every day and sweet we learn at an early age to handle with care.
Nice to meet you!
