So you're in the kitchen making dinner, say fajitas and it's time to slice the onions and you can feel the tears in your eyes before you even pick up the knife.
Most of us have done everything from staring into water and chewing on bread to wearing swimming goggles, so what's the right answer? Try storing them in the fridge first...it helps reduce the gas buildup inside that turns to sulfuric acid, causing the tears.
