Chili Remedy

If you are unfortunate enough to accidentally get chili in your nose (my personal favorite), some other delicate area, or just one with too much heat, milk is the fastest way to cool it. For lips, soak them in the glass. Too much, sip milk until you feel better. Nose, eyelids, other, use a Q-tip or cotton ball soaked in milk. Dab the affected area. It will feel better on contact and take approximately ten minutes to diminish, depending on the strength of the chili, or you could you use Ms. Basinger’s method.

The video is a little racy.
