It may not feel like summer is approaching at the moment, but it will soon.
That can only mean one thing, lots of bugs and flies swarming around our crates.
But if you’re tired of seeing them, one mom has revealed a clever trick to banish them.
Usually, however, flies and maggots in your outside bins are caused by a combination of heat and litter.
Luckily, one woman from Wales shared a super easy trick to prevent it.
The mother of four shared the hack on her TikTok account, sisterwhere it went viral with over four million views.
First, start by scrubbing your bucket with water and soap to remove any dirt on the bottom.
Then she lets them dry and does a super simple trick that will stop flies from flying around your crate.
Using Morrison’s table salt, she sprinkled a generous amount on the bottom of the barrel.
“The salt soaks into any liquid that leaks and the flies and maggots die when they eat it,” she explains.
The woman uses it in her food waste bins but it can also be used on larger cake bins.
It also makes cleaning your bucket a lot easier because the salt absorbs excess liquid.
Viewers of the video were extremely impressed by the simple hack, with one person writing: “I did this and tested today it really works. Thanks!”
“Thank you for this! Will do this right away.” Another viewer said.
A third commented: “I actually just cleaned my bin yesterday why didn’t I see this first.”
“Woah, I just ordered the newspaper but I still have random maggots in the summer even with regular disposal.” a fourth person answered.
Other viewers shared their own trash-cleaning tricks, with one suggesting: “Add baking powder and it won’t smell.”
Another user asserted: “Coffee grounds work for me too”.
In addition, a woman shares a ‘genius’ tricks to make bin days easier, but not everyone is on board.
