Cleaning scallions can be a mundane kitchen task, but with this simple tip you'll be chopping in no time.
For a fast and efficient way to clean scallions, use a paper towel instead of a knife. Wrap a paper towel around the stem of the green onion. Grip the onion and slide the towel down the stem, peeling off the top layer. Now, snap the root end off. This not only removes unwanted layers, but also the grit and dirt particles.
