Using a clean cloth:

Use a moist cloth to clean the skin of the onion and remove all additional skin or extra water or moisture present. Keep these onions in the refrigerator uncovered. The onions shouldn’t be covered or kept in a closed container because the moisture from the onions will ooze out and water will form which will cause a bad smell and make the onion mouldy.



If you wish to keep the containers for a short period, you can keep them in plastic containers. Remember you should not place their lid as it will cause moisture retention.
