Use VINEGAR.. to get rid of FRUIT FLIES


This week we learn a few new and unusual tips for vinegar found in this great book:


unnamed (9)




Eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day is highly recommended, but that can mean a lot of fresh produce ripening in your kitchen, and a welcome sign for fruit flies to come in and dine.  Forget chemical fly-sprays;  make a simple, eco-friendly fruit fly trap;  half fill a conserve jar with apple cider vinegar, punch a couple of holes in the lid and leave it for the flies to end their days.

    I was just thinking about this while I was cutting an apple this morning and how now that winters over I’m expecting the fruit flies to be buzzing around soon.

    My husband thought I was crazy when I told him to do this (we use apple cider vinegar with a drop of soap in a jar). In the morning he was pretty surprised to see all the fruit flies in the jar. This works better than anything I’ve ever tried from a store.

    It’s pretty cool how we usually have a solution to our household problems right in our cupboards (and vinegar is usually the solution!)

    All the best!

      Couldn’t agree more Britney. They have been driving me crazy for days, and after putting out a jar with apple cider vinegar they are almost all gone. THRILLED.
