Clean all your things that had contact with Habaneros. Especially your fingers. Clean your fingers in-depth right after you worked with Habaneros. Do NOT touch your face, eyes, nose, your cat or your children. It won’t kill them but I advice you not to do. It burns like fire.
Even if you washed your fingers with soap three times hours later they will be still hot. So maybe your fingers are still hot on the next day. The juice of the Habanero fruit will dig into the cells of your fingers.
If you have some lesion on your fingers you should not work with Habaneros.
Don’t use knifes, cutting boards or plates used with Habaneros for other things before you cleaned them in-depth. You probably should handle the Habaneros after you done all your other work needed for the dish.
Don’t breath through your mouth while eating a Habanero or a dish made of Habaneros.
 Or any other sensitive place on your body.
 And it also won’t kill you.
 With hot I mean the pungency.
