#MicroblogMondays 22: Onion Goggles
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
When I need to cut a lot of onions… like more than two onions… I wear a snorkel mask. I skip the snorkel and just wear the goggles which cover half my face. They’re really tight so they leave a mark on my face when I take them off. But that is preferable to having tears rolling down my face as I try not to slice my finger off with the onions.
I also use this Lifehacker tip to rethread a drawstring. I clip the string onto the ballpoint pen and then slide the pen through the hole, dragging the string with it. The drawstring is back in place in seconds.
I love hearing other people’s clever work-arounds, mostly so I can borrow them. So what are your clever tricks?

Please read the three rules on this post to understand the difference between a permalink to a post and a blog’s main URL.) Only personal blogs can be added to the list. I will remove any posts that are connected to businesses or are sponsored posts.
