Two Kitchen Ingredients That'll Get Your Hummingbird Feeder Sparkling
Hummingbird feeders usually contain sugar water that, once congealed, clogs the feeding holes. Thankfully, you can easily clean your feeder with just some baking soda and vinegar.
You'll also need warm, distilled water; a basin or sink; and a handled sponge. Use a ratio of one part baking soda and two parts vinegar, but keep them separate.
Then, dust the hummingbird feeder with baking soda and scrub. The abrasive baking soda will bond with the sugar and begin lifting off the feeder.
Next, combine equal parts vinegar and warm water in the sink or a wash basin of some sort. Submerge all parts of the feeder and let them soak for 30 minutes.
Afterward, scrub the parts again to remove any remaining sugar particles. Finally, rinse in warm water and allow all parts to dry before reassembly.
