From the Test Kitchen
When preparing hot chile peppers, avoid burning your skin and eyes by wearing gloves or sandwich bags over your hands. This way, your skin doesn't come in contact with the hot pepper oils. Also be sure to always wash your hands and nails thoroughly in hot, soapy water after handling the peppers.
