DIY: Fruit Fly Repellent

One of the things that I love about Summer is the fresh fruit we get to enjoy. Whether it's watermelon, cherries, peaches or apples, cold and delicious fruit has a way of always being there during birthday parties, family barbecues and just on those hot Summer days when you need something good to snack on.

This Summer we've had tons of fruit around the house, the only downside to this is getting those pesky little fruit flies that appear out of nowhere and annoy the heck out of you. So back in the beginning of July I did a little search and found everything that I needed to get rid of those little buggers was already in my kitchen waiting to be used. 

Apple Cider Vinegar and Dish washing Liquid.

 Two ingredients that will get rid of those fruit flies by the next day. I used this and have only had to use it once more at the beginning of August and that was it. These buggers gravitate to this mixture like you wouldn't believe. So I hope this is useful for you all out there, it certainly was for me and will be when these buggers decide to come back.
