Lime safety and baking

I ignored the warning about gloves, etc. when working with lime, because I would always just rinse my hands in water after getting some on them.

Yesterday, however, I baked bread in the morning. A few tiny bits of the dough clung pretty tightly to my knuckles when I started then work on plastering. Now I have a few tiny lime burns on my knuckles. Seems the lime water absorbed into the dough, and didn't wash out when I washed my hands in water.

Just a little warning for anyone combining baking and plastering!
 
when your children are suffering from your punishment, tell your them it will help them write good poetry when they are older. Like this tiny ad:
