What do you do if an acid is splashed on your skin?

If you spill an acid or base on your skin, immediately wash well with water. Strong bases react with the oils in your skin to produce a soapy feeling layer. Rinse until well after that feeling is gone. Do not attempt to neutralize a spill on your skin.
