How on Earth do you get Jakfruit off your hands?!?!

I tried jakfruit for the first time yesterday because my amazing mum brought it home for me.
I was so hungry when i got home so i just dug into it (mum told me it was a messy fruit and i hate cleaning up) then when it came to cleaning up i went and washed my hands but the sticky stuff would not come off. So i got the dishwashing detergent out and washed my hands thoroughly 5 times and it still wouldnt come off. So i went down to the laundry and sat there scrubbing my hands with nappysan trying to get this off BUT IT STILL WOULDNT COME OFF!!!!!! so i was there with sticky stuff on my lips and all over my hands and it was driving me insane.

I really enjoyed the jakfruit but this sticky business is really putting me off it. There must be a way you can get it off your hands properly and straight away....anyone?????

any kind of oil will dissolve the latex
today I foraged about 100 pounds of them good crunchy kind
also some ppl put a little olive oil on their hands before eating but you may just end up eating some olive oil with it which isn't the best.
haha thanks guys...i was getting so so annoyed with it. Everytime i closed my mouth my lips would stick together and i couldnt touch anything but next time i will definately get the oil out
ohh how funny hehe, well i have a second one there so i will allow that to ripen for longer and see how i go with that. How do you know if they are ripe enough because the one i ate the other day was quite soft so i thought it would be really ripe. So does that mean when they are ripe they are easier to pull apart because this one was quite hard.
It should be really spongy, a bit of browning is ok too but most importantly it must have a strong sweet odour. I get some from tropical fruit world and they can be very latexy but still taste amazing. If you leave some too long they ferment and taste awful so it can be a fine line and depend on how well the jak is grown. The trick is to not cut through the core because this is where most of the latex is. Also a lot of the time you should be able to put your fingers into the jakfruit and open with your hands with minimal if any latex
lol sounds like an art to eating jakfruit. Might have to hack into my second one soon then and just get the oil out incase. It tastes very sweet like bubblegum
no no not hacking!! Get your fingers in there :-) Be a little primitive
hahaha i will try
yes, no water doesnt work at all, it actually makes it worse.

Im going to give it another go soon
