tears plus a spoon solution

This yours truly after cutting one measly onion! Do you tear up too?  I think I've tried a bunch of different things to combat the onion tears. Last week my friend Lyndsay suggested something I'd never heard of or tried before.

She suggested a stainless steel spoon held in my mouth while I cut.  And TA DA! It worked for me! I kept my lips closed around it the entire time but it really did work.  My eyes felt the vapour a tiny smidge but no tears and nothing like the red eyes, tears pouring, runny nose sort of reaction I usually suffer with.

Have you had any success combating the onion tears?
