Bye-Bye Fruit Flies
It's that time of year. We all have fruits and veggies on our counters and sometimes a piece of produce goes bad with out us knowing. Boom, we have a fruit fly problem. Here's a quick and easy hack to solve this!
By simply pouring apple cider vinegar into an open cup or bowl and adding a drop or two of dish detergent you can easily make an incredibly effective trap for ridding your kitchen of fruit flies. Place it near your fruit bowl or trash can and within a day you will have nipped the problem in the bud.
Why This Works:
Fruit flies are attracted to the smell of the vinegar and will attempt to land on the surface. However, since the dish soap breaks the surface tension of the vinegar, the fruit flies fall in and sink to the bottom.
