suck on a cold teaspoon while cutting as the cold constricts the tearducts and prevents crying - usually!

I ALWAYS wear swimming goggles! I might look kind of crazy but it truly works! :)

Having a fan blowing over me while I cut onions really helps keep the tears at bay.

I can't remember why it works? Something about the chemical reaction in the air space. But burning a candle close by works every time!! :) Swear by it.

Yes, it is chilling...I put mine In the freezer for about 20 minutes before chopping -magic ! No tears.

Seriously, for years I smart-assedly (that's a word, right?) informed people that I'm just not that sensitive to onions. They don't bother me. I am strong, you are weak. Then I got laser eye surgery, stopped wearing contacts, and no longer can I arrogantly claim onion immunity. Oh well. I guess I'll try the freezer thing.

I put a wet sponge next to where I'm going to cut the onions and I don't get any tears...try it...it really works!
