Just plain old ordinary milk works well for washing out/off capsasin (sp?) too.

Had a bad experience biting into a large chunk of a habanero at someone else's house where there was no milk. I think I poured a couple gallons of water down my throat in an attempt to stop weeping, all the time saying "Oh, no, I'm quite all right!" Didn't know the alcohol trick, though- would have helped then, seeing as there was a decent amount of wine there.
