Do you absolutely hate cutting onions because of how much they smell and make your eyes burn? I hate it when I cut into an onion and just have a ridiculous flow of tears streaming down my cheeks, my eyes are on fire, and the smell and feeling lingers for quite some time afterwards.
Why do onions make your eyes water?
When an onion is sliced or diced, the onion's cells release these compounds into the air. When this occurs, "enzyme" works to alter the amino acids into lachrymator compounds. This form of sulfuric acid irritates the nerves around the eyes making them tear.
Ok so basically there is no way to permanently get rid of the potent onion problem but there is a solution that can make the smell and irritating reaction go in another direction!
