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.
