Or a Pipe Cleaner And if you still suspect there’s more stuff in there, insert a pipe cleaner and twist, remove, repeat as needed.

To chop onions without crying: Onions are a great addition to a dish but chopping them can be frustrating, as they bring you to tears. Try peeling and cutting onions under running water or try chopping them near a gas flame. Refrigerating onions before cutting them is also a good idea.
