LauraAll Posts, Healthy Living

In honor of Snoopy!!! The Musical, I present the following series inspired by one of the songs: Knowing What I Know Now.

There are certain questions that I’ve asked “Google” over the years. Now that I know the answers, I thought I’d share them on this blog in case someone else googles the same question and happens to discover this very post for an answer! Also, when your friends and co-workers are asking you the same questions, you can pipe in with, “Well, I know a woman who knows that…”

Googled: How do I get rid of fruit flies in the kitchen?!

What I Know Now: Gross. I know. This recipe works like a charm: Fill the bottom of a bowl with dish detergent. Pour in a little water so that the soap bubbles a bit. Add a large splash of Apple Cider Vinegar. Cover tightly with Saran Wrap. Poke many holes in the top with a toothpick.

‘Turns out, they can’t resist the temptation.

Oh, and for all those folks out there who are trying to find the “source” of the fruit flies: Once, on a flight out of town, I met a higher-up at Orkin. I immediately grilled her about fruit flies. She said that they nest in drain pipes.
