It’s that time of the year when spiders are running rampant around our homes and almost every night we are greeted with a huge, hairy, eight-legged friend in our bedrooms.
If you’re not a fan of creepy crawlies scuttling around your house, we have the perfect household hack for you.
This shopper has discovered a cheap, effective and humane way to keep spiders out of her home. In a post shared in Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, Sylvia Crawford revealed her method, which involved anti-bac spray and leftover mint leaves.
Like a lot of insects, spiders can’t stand mint. Sheila put the left-over mint leaves in a spray bottle with a small amount of cleaner left, and sprayed it around her doors and windows.
She wrote, “I watched the spiders run as I sprayed.”
This way, there is no need to kill or catch spiders as they
won’t want to go near your house in the first place.
Will you be giving this hack a go?
