A member asked:

I had my hands in 125ml of dishwashing liquid and water for 2 hours 50 mins and then for 2 hours without rinsing it off my skin. will this lead to the chemicals being absorbed? my hands were red & had a few cuts on afterwards. can this cause cancer?

It will not cause cancer. Superficial layers of your skin may shed and leave raw areas. However, my concern is not skin cancer but your thought process that led you to engage in this self destructive action. You may wish to seek counseling. Wish you good health!

Most household chemicals used for washing and cleaning are fairly safe. So you do not need to worry about developing cancer due to exposure to the dishwashing liquid.
