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!
Note to self: don't get into a fist fight with a cactus. Command this tiny ad to do it:
