It is common to have tears in the eyes when chopping onions. The main reason for tears is that the chemicals released by the onions come into contact with the eyes. Now a woman has found a solution to this problem and you too can use it to easily cut onions without tearing. According to the Daily Star, a woman named Trina Mitchell shared the idea on Facebook.
According to this woman, ‘When we cut onions, the reason we get tears in our eyes is because the chemicals in the onions are drawn to the nearest water source (which is usually the eyes). It makes tears flow from our eyes.’

According to Trina Mitchell, “If we want to stop the tears that flow when we cut onions, we have to convert the chemical somewhere other than in the eyes.” To do this, she takes a paper towel and moistens it with water. Then place this wet towel and some water on the spot where you are cutting the onion. By doing so, the chemicals released during the cutting of the onion will be absorbed by the damp paper towel instead of your eyes.
