keep your eyes open when cutting onions ,don't open and close because more tears will come .look the other way so the juice from the onions will not get to your eyes.better still, don't cut onions ,leave it to ginny hahaha!

My ears tear up as well. I've heard that if you chew gum while cutting the onions, it won't sting your eyes. I haven't been cutting onions recently so I haven't tried it but maybe you can. Hope it helps!

Hey, I hate it when I cut up onions, I really start to have tears in my eyes. I am probably the worst when it comes to cut the onions, so many tears come out of my eyes, that it honestly looks like I am crying. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!
