Onion Hack

Much of today was spent preparing food. I started with slicing several red onions, but after starting the first one, my eyes were already in pain. I hadn't even finished the first one and wasn't sure how I could continue to finish that on let alone do four more onions!

Then, while blinking through the pain, I had an idea:

Chopping board with knife and sliced red onions. A small fan is sitting to the left.
Vapours be gone!

I found a usb powered desk fan and set it up to blow the painful vapours across the table and not into my eyes. It wasn't perfect, it didn't completely remove the vapours, just diluted them but it was enough to let me get on with cutting the onions up without my eyes running so hard I couldn't see where the onions finished and my fingers started.

Definitely something to remember next time I am preparing food.
