This may be one of those infamous posts that one regrets hours or days after for actually letting the blogosphere see a less-than-shining example of ones life, but for the sake of helping others I'm just going to do it.
Let's say that you were to leave on vacation and forget about a certain piece of fresh produce in your kitchen. . . a pear perhaps.
And let's say that you came back a week and a half later to find your kitchen disturbingly infested with little red fruit flies. And they gross you out, and you child runs away from them screaming: "There's a 'squito in the house!" and it does nothing to help encourage you in the new goals you had set while on vacation about being a better homekeeper.
Well if this (or not exactly this, but something similar) was to happen to you--it just so happens that I know how to help rid you of this problem.
Get a small dish, pour in 1/4 cup or so of apple cider vinegar. Then add a few drops of liquid dish soap and swish it around. Then set it out at the source of the problem.
The next morning, the dish will look like this:
The sweet vinegar attracts them and the dish soap breaks the surface tension so they sink when they try to land and get a drink. All I know is it works--it's possible that I've used this technique on multiple occasions.
You'll thank me. . . one day it'll happen to you, and you'll thank me.
