I was helping a friend pour a slab last Wednesday. Mixed up 42 bags of concrete in four hours. Not bad for a man my age, even with a mixer.
but I forgot the first rule of mixing concrete.
and that, of course, is washing your hands BEFORE going to the bathroom.
Now I have an alkali burn so gnarly I'm contemplating seeing a doctor. As in I can't even wear pants, just loose pajamas. Been showering at least every six hours to keep the burning bearable.
Anybody have any useful advice?
