Help! For all of your nature people out there: who knows how to clean off the milk of fresh figs. I just came home with 3 kilos of beautiful fresh figs, on my way to make candied figs in syrup. I am covered in the astringent sticky milk. I have scrubbed and scrubbed, but my hands, arms, shoulders and hair are still a mess. Any advice?
