This Onion Hack Works – Greg and Audra Test it On-Air!

The hack worked well on red and yellow onions, but not on the white onion! Check it out..

Greg and Audra put this onion hack to the test.  They found it worked well on preventing teary eyes when cutting a red and yellow onion, but not the white onion.

This #onionhack that has recently gotten a lot of attention for it’s simple solution.  The hack claims that putting a damp paper towel under the onion before cutting it stops the tears.  The concept is based on the idea that onions release acid that is attracted to a water source (like our eyes) so if you place another wet source close by it won’t get to our eyes.  The hack shows the solution is a wet paper towel on the cutting board.
