Life Hack: Cutting Onions Without Crying

Is it really possible to cut onions without crying?

It’s life hack week on QC Morning!

It never fails. You’re trying to cook a delicious meal, you start cutting up onions, and next thing you know your eyes are watering and the tears are flowing. There are a lot of theories out there about how to keep your eyes from tearing up, so we decided to test two of them.

Hack 1:

Put a piece of bread in your mouth and let it hang out.

Hack 2:

Freeze the onion for up to 30 minutes.


Both hacks worked! But we did find that once the onion starts thawing out, your eyes will start watering. So work fast!
