Full Answer

Fresh sprigs of parsley sweeten the breath, which helps to eliminate the onion odor. After eating onions, chew on a fresh sprig or two to lessen the odor. Couple lemon juice with equal parts cool water and make sure to swish it around well in the mouth similar to using a mouthwash. Citrus peels have a strong scent and flavor, which helps them to overpower the scent and flavor of an onion.
