If you love to cook, you probably keep a box of tissues nearby when chopping onions (waterproof mascara is always a good idea, too). However, cry no more as the folks from Household Hacker show us how to eliminate those onion-induced eye irritants by simply chopping the ends off and microwaving it! They also demonstrate nine other microwave life hacks, including everything from making potato chips to cleaning sponges to sterilizing cutting boards.
Here at SF Globe, we had no clue the microwave had so many purposes and we're curious to try a couple of these tricks ourselves. Sure, some of them may
seem a little over-the-top, but we can't deny it's pretty tempting to use our microwaves for more than just nuking leftovers!
Do you use any of these hacks at home? Which one is your favorite? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below and make sure to share if you found these microwave tricks as clever as we did.
