Hoff Hit: Garlic

Working with garlic?  Wash your hands!

If left on your skin long enough, skinned garlic can cause second to third-degree burns requiring skin grafting.

The chemicals in garlic that give it it's powerful anti-viral & anti-bacterial properties are the same that can cause a severe allergic reaction called contact dermatitis, when applied directly to the skin.

Don't worry, these chemicals won't harm you by eating them, just choppy chop and then washy wash!
