Why I clean with vinegar

My house gets invaded by wasps every year. I just killed a giant one in my bathroom by spraying it with some old kitchen cleaner. I've used this cleaner for killing invading ants for years. I haven't used it for cleaning since I realized it's really damn good at killing ants. It's kinda scary how quickly it killed that wasp.

Anyone know how to deter wasps? We fill in the places they get in every year, but they keep finding new ways. Everything I've seen at the store is either a chemical to spray after they've invaded, or a trap that attracts them. I want something to drive them away.

I just do 50/50 vinegar and water in a spray bottle. I clean everything but the bathrooms with it.

Awesome. EASY! :)
...What do you use for restrooms? Does it not clean very well in there?

I don't know my parents always used the water hose after they were already nesting.

I've been told it works just as well in bathrooms, but I'm a total germaphobe about toilets. I use bleach in the bathroom.

Yeah, my husband will take an entire can of Raid to wherever he thinks they're nesting, but they always come back. We had to duct tape the vent above the stove because they were coming in at least 5 at a time through it.
