A TikTokker who calls herself on the social media app Cereal Eating Ghost, has generated a lot of grateful reactions with a very simple life hack that she shared in a video. For example, she would have given other TikTokkers “the best advice of the century”.
All you need for this life hack is kitchen paper. The idea is simple; put a damp paper towel on your cutting board on which you cut your onions. The sulfur that is released when you cut an onion is attracted to the moisture in the paper and not to the moisture in your eyes. Nice!
#stitch with @xxbaileyelizabethxx thank you for making me crave lentil soup 🖤

There are more handy tricks that can help you avoid irritated eyes. For example, you can try holding your onion under a running tap first, so that the gas doesn’t reach your eyes. Also dampen your knife when you cut.
It can also help to turn on the extractor as soon as you start cutting, because the sulfur gas is then drawn into the extractor and less of it gets to your eyes.
By the way, did you know that a cut onion helps against a cold? An onion on your nightstand can help you sleep better if you have a stuffy nose.
