Easily Clean Your Hummingbird Feeder With Two Kitchen Ingredients

Baking soda, distilled white vinegar, warm water (distilled is ideal), a basin or sink, and a handled sponge are needed to clean your hummingbird feeder. Make your ingredients first.   

Mix one part baking soda and two parts vinegar, but keep them separate. Scrub the hummingbird feeder after baking soda dusting. Sugar and abrasive baking soda bond to lift the feeder.   

Next, mix equal parts vinegar and warm water in a sink or washbasin. Soak all feeder parts for 30 minutes. Repeat the scrub to remove any leftover sugar.   

Replace parts after a warm water rinse and drying. When refilling your feeder with nectar, clean it every time. Avoid mistakes with your hummingbird feeder. Local birds will like it.  

Bees and hummingbirds need nectar. It provides amino acids and metabolites for sustenance. DIY nectar won't be perfect, but it will fuel a visiting hummingbird.   

White sugar, water, a kettle to boil, a bowl, and a spoon are needed to make homemade hummingbird nectar.

Boil one cup of water. When water boils, add ¼ cup sugar. Stir water to dissolve sugar. Let the mixture cool after the sugar dissolves. Then fill the feeder with sugar water.  

A funnel may work best for this portion, depending on your feeder design. Finally, assemble the feeder per instructions. Hummingbirds will visit if the feeder is visible from above.
