Palmolive does NOT kill ants. Even if you happen to dump an ENTIRE bottle of Palmolive concentrate on the ants who are congregating in your bathroom....they will. not. die. I think they may actually enjoy the scent of the Palmolive as well as the lovely bubbles and slip and slide action. Also note that it is extremely, and I mean exTREMEly difficult to clean Palmolive off a tile bathroom floor. Adding water...does NOT help! I repeat....DOES NOT help! You will only have a sudsy mess. Then, when you try to wring out your towel to attempt to "clean" up the mess, you will have endless bubbles. Vinegar, however, IS helpful! It seems to cut right through the layers of suds! Ants are not detracted by vinegar either.
This is the main lesson I learned from Tanner today. The vinegar tip was from my mother.....
One more sunshiny fact from my boys....... At least the bathroom floor is clean now!
Gotta love em!
