Do you cut onion? Are your eyes full of tears when cutting onion? Wear your swimming glasses when you cut onion.I do that every time and my eyes are never full of tears.Try it,you will agree with me!

Hey, save your swimming glasses! The best way to cut onions without crying is to put them in water as soon as you cut them. This way their tear-inducing chemeicals are diluted and you will be smiling your way to dining table!

I wear regular glasses anyway, so haven't really had a problem. Before I had to wear glasses, I used to cut onions on a cutting board in the sink, with the water running. It seemed to work.

Yes,cutting in water is a way.But I think it doesn't work well.

I have also heard that if you wash your onion and hands you won't have the problem.

Hi there. When preparing onions, I usually peel them and then cut off both ends and squeeze them under running cold water for a bit, then I start to chop them, this works for me, as I dont like to get the stingy watery eyes...
