Losing some tears while cutting onions is natural. The vapour of the onion causing a burning effect in the eyes is the main cause of the tears and in case you did not know it, there’s a small hack that could help you escape this problem.
It’s considered that running a hot water tap while cutting onion could be a trick to avoid crying. The steam from the hot water tap will dissipate the vapors from the onion and in turn preventing them from getting into our eyes.
So next time you decide to cut onions, make sure that you are near a hot tap.
