    It’s like building up an immunity where the more you’e exposed the more immunity you have.


    For onions that means you need to rub the onion on your eyes. It will sting a bit the first couple of times, but after awhile you’ll be fine.

    Wash the onion before you chop it or whatever, onions give off certain gases which will affect your eyes, so wash them first

    Cut the onion when it's submerged in cold water.  

    The irritants stay in the water.

    Keep the knife wet and soak the onions prior to cutting them

    Refrigerate the onions before cutting. At least a day.
