How to get rid of fruit flies in your kitchen

Today I have another tip for you, one that have changed my life (ha, ha!). Recently my kitchen has been full of fruit flies - this is natural in the summer, I have got plenty of fresh fruit in my baskets, also they love the smell of sour starter that I bring out of the fridge at least 2-3 times a week.

This is easy, homemade method, I have found it in users' comments below some article about getting rid of fruit flies on one of American websites. I tried it and it turned out to be a huge success.

You need:

- a glass
- cider or white wine vinegar
- about tsp of washing liquid  

Place some vinegar in a glass (1-2 cm should be enough), add washing liquid and leave near the place in your kitchen where you get the most of the annoying insects. After about 12-24 hours you will see plenty of dead flies on the bottom of the glass. Victory! I am not going to show you photograph of dead flies in the vinegar - it is not appetising, even this is very satisfying to get rid of these flies. May the Force be with you!

  1. Wow! Amazing....Thankfully they haven't been quite as bad this Summer as last but they still appear every other day or so. Next time I see them I will definitely try this - thanks for sharing! : )

    1. no problem Lynds. :) I had amazing feedback on my Polish blog - so many people tried it and reported back that it works. I am really pleased this came handy. :) xxx
