10 Uses of Apple Cider Vinegar - Part 4
#7 - Banish Fruit Flies for Good (They seem to love my bananas!)
To get rid of these pests, fill an empty wine bottle halfway with apple cider vinegar and 5 drops of dish soap and place it near the fruit bowl. The apple cider vinegar's aroma will draw the flies in but the sticky layer of soap will trap them in the liquid.
#8 Clean an Iron Effortlessly (As seldom as I iron I may never try this but it sounds good)
If your iron isn't getting wrinkles out as well as it should, there may be built-up gunk clogging the steam holes. The fix is: Fill the water tank with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar, set the iron upright and turn it on the steam setting for 5 minutes. Pour out any excess liquid, refill with water and repeat. The vinegar helps break down the deposits so your iron will work like new.
