From hair Many people know that onion masks are an excellent tool for maintaining hair in excellent condition, as well as treating them. Even professional hair care products cannot be compared to the effect of a regular onion gruel mask. The only thing that tube masks are better than garden masks is aroma. However, it is not necessary to give up beauty because of the smell.

A honey mask will also help rid your hair of the onion scent. The mask not only removes the smell, but also perfectly cares for the hair. Ingredients: 2 egg yolks, honey, citrus essential oil (lemon, orange, bergamot, etc.). Apply the mask to the hair lengthwise, leave for two hours (you can put on a shower cap and warm your head with a towel). After 120 minutes, rinse your hair with warm water. Another remedy for onion odors in your hair is vinegar. All you need to do is to dilute 2 tablespoons of vinegar (not essence!) In 1 liter of water and, after the onion mask has been washed off, rinse your hair.
From kitchen utensils Cookware can also absorb onion odors. To "expel" the smell of onions from the pan, you need to pour 2 tablespoons of vinegar into it - any, put on the fire and boil for a couple of minutes. Then wash with normal detergent. This way you will kill two birds with one stone - remove the onion smell from the pan and the characteristic "kitchen" smell from the room. Onion amber can be removed from metal appliances (knives, forks, spoons) by wiping them with salt. This method is also suitable for eliminating onion odors from cutting boards.
