#2 Insect Repellent
Do you have a problem with ants in your home? In my opinion there aren’t a whole lot of things that are worse then being invaded by ants! To prevent future invasions you need to arm your door crossings, your window sills and the baseboards! “Pour full-strength white vinegar around [those] areas [to] prevent the [ants] from invading.” They don’t like white vinegar, which means I love white vinegar!
#3 Fly Trap
Okay I have to admit that my least favorite thing about summer are the flies and the mosquitoes! With this trick I can get rid of those nasty pests! “To get rid of flies in the house [fill] an old jar about 1/2 way with apple cider vinegar. Punch a few holes in the lid, screw the lid back on and the flies will crawl through the holes.” To make a “portable trap” for summer garden parties and BBQs “place a bowl filled with apple cider vinegar near some food, but away from you and your guests. By the [end of the evening] most of your uninvited guests will be floating inside the bowl.” I sure wish I had known these tricks sooner, but now that I know them, I’m looking forward to a fly-free summer!!!
Have fun getting rid of all the pests around your home! Join me tomorrow for tips on how to use vinegar for cleaning!
