I have been in the resteraunt industry for 10 years and the one thing I hate the most is getting burned. A good quick fix for releif is to spread mustard on the burn and let sit! Trust me it WORKS!
Mustard really does work

Painful at First but Very Effective

I was told this by my mom when I burned 3 fingers on an exhaust pipe. It is painful at first, but it draws all of the heat out and you do not blister. I could touch and use my fingers just a few hours after it happened.

My friend burnt her finger on the rack of a stove and used the mustard remedy from this site, and only found the mustard relieving her pain temporarily...Anything else REALLY work?!?

When I was about 10 years old I was making a pizza and managed to drop the rack it was on , on my arm. Mom lathered me up with some mustard and weirdly enough it helped the pain and soothed the burn. No one seemed to believe me when i said it, glad to see it's on here!
