You would be hard pressed to find someone who cries more than I do while chopping onions.
I’M THE WORST.
We’re talking buckets – burning eyes, smudged mascara – the whole package.
Short of goggles, I’ve tried every trick in the book – freezing the onion, chopping it under running water – and nothing worked.
To chop an onion without crying, simply put a couple of matches (unlit!!!) between your lips.
Needless to say I was as skeptical as ever but this really truly worked. No tears.
I don’t understand the science behind the “why”, but who cares – my make-up is saved!
How about you? Any surefire no-tears methods that have worked for you?
