    So far, it's the best fly trap I've ever had. After just a few hours, hundreds of dead fruit flies. Very effective. Very gross. Appetite successfully killed. D:

    Thanks for this! 🙂

    I've been leaving the door to the garden open, and my place got inundated. I like fruit and that's become a problem.

    I put the vinigar in a bowl, stretch cling film across, poke very small pin holes in the cling film, then collect fruit flies that can’t escape.

    Lots of fruit in our garden that needs gathering and processing right now so the flies become very interested.

    Cheers, h.

    Yep. Also add a drop of dish soap, it breaks the surface tension so they don't just float on top.

    Ooh I don’t know why I never thought of that. So obvious.

    Cheers, h.

    Apple cider vinegar is more useful as a cleaning product than it is something to help you lose weight.

    I read an article where Cheryl Cole said ACV and celery juice were the secrets of her weight loss regime. The explanation was the ACV binds to carbs and makes you feel full for longer.

    If the website had a woo button I would have used it.

    Oops, I nearly woo'd you.
    I just wonder how binding something with fairly few calories and mass to specifically carbs makes you full longer. Maybe if ACV comes with little suction cups that effectively suction the food to the walls of the stomach, while protecting it from stomach acid (an acid offering protection against acid?), and thus it stays there for longer :* :D

    I don't think drinking it neat is bad either - unless in ridiculous copious quantity, but that goes for any food.

    I don't drink it or use it in any way at all myself and I certainly don't believe any magic claims about it - but it isn't bad for you to drink if you want to.

    It just doesn't do anything special.

    ACV is good in marinades, dressings and other recipes. It holds no magical properties.

    There are lots of threads on here about it, and the fact that it's just a load of nonsense, the BBC did a little study on it and they said the same. It's acid, it's not good for you.


    Just for clarity it’s not bad for you, it just does nothing in terms of fat loss, cleansing or any of the other wild claims you see touted.

    Plenty of acids in daily foods, after all! I use it in a lot of recipes, just like I use many other acids.

    I meant drinking it neat is not good, in recipes it's fine.

    Drinking it neat is no worse, based on acidity, than numerous common beverages.

    ACV at the standard commercial 5% dilution runs around pH 3.3-3.5 (some other vinegars can be lower, i.e., more acidic), as I understand it. (Diluting it with water raises the pH, making it less acidic, since water is higher pH).

    Clearly, limiting all corrosive drinks is a good plan (according to the ADA), but ACV isn't likely a special scary case.
