Another cleaning enthusiast, Sandra Hoban, recommended “a cup of bicarbonate of soda and a cup of white vinegar down plug hole and let it fizz”.

“When it stops pour a kettle of boiling water down.

“Then at least once a week a cup of soda crystals and boiling water.”

Baking soda is one of the most effective solutions to get rid of drain flies.

Simply pour half a cup of salt, half a cup of baking soda, and one cup of vinegar down the drain.

The vinegar will react with the baking soda, causing it to fizz, and the reaction is what will kill the larvae.

Leave the mixture overnight, then flush in the morning with hot water.
