Honey or Vinegar: Putting an Old Adage to the Test

While you might catch more flies with honey, it turns out you actually catch more fruit flies with vinegar.

Most specifically, this is about two ounces of apple cider vinegar and about three drops of liquid dish soap in a plastic cup. Thanks to my in-laws for passing along the recipe when we most needed it.

    That reflection is wild!

    We’ve done just acv with a paper cone ending in a tiny hole & that works. I haven’t tried the dish soap, too. Hopefully, I won’t have reason to try this again any time soon, though.
