Thai Fire Peppers - Help!

Spent the day canning some mango - thai fire pepper hot sauce (very, very hot - but delicious!) My hands are on fire and I'm trying everything for them. Soaking them in ice water while having a tequila seems to help.

I'm wondering though if I can save my cutting board? Scrubbed several times but the last slice of lemon I cut (for the tequila) was still hot.

  1. WD40, but you needed to use it immediately after handling the peppers. Nothing to do now but enjoy the burn. The cutting board will eventually "cool" off, you can scrape the top layer off (don't sand!) and re-season if it needs to be back to normal NOW
