Onions, especially the red one make us cry when cutting them which causes discomfort. Below are some tips on how you can reduce the effects.
- Sprinkle salt all over the onion before you start cutting.
- Stick your tongue out the whole time you are cutting. The tongue absorbs the onion juice.
- Ã‚Â If sticking the tongue out is uncomfortable, bite onto a slice of bread that that the onion juice is absorbed onto it
- Soak the onions in water for a minute or two before slicing
