[Capsaicin is lipophillic (dissolves in fats, oil, etc, rather than polar solvents like water). Milk works, but only really the full-fat milk. Dipping the tips of your fingers in a small bowl of olive oil seems to work for me, although it may be that it worked one time and all the other times have been unnecessary!
It's alcohol soluble (> 30mg/ml according to https://www.caymanchem.com/pdfs/92350.pdf), so hand sanitiser or vodka might be worth trying.
I'll think of something.

If you think I'm wasting good vodka...

Don't waste it. Recycle it into a bl..dy Mary, and you can look secretive when your guest asks about the special recipe.

I propose this faintly chilli flavoured hand-washing variant of a bl..dy Mary be called a Lady Macbeth.
