Do you want to keep those spiders away?
If your skin crawls at the thought of spiders being anywhere near you like I do! You need to read on and try this super trick to keep them at bay.
First of all put those conkers away!
Put down your spider catchers!
You won’t need those if you use this top tip!
I am terrified of spiders so with military planning I headed off to my local homeware store to pick up my spider deterrent kit!
All you need to buy is the following.
Basic spray bottle:
Any type of cloth:
Next head home and begin your barracade!
Firstly fill up your spray bottle with cold water.
Next add 2 to 3 drops of your peppermint oil into the water.
Screw up your lid and give it a little shake.
Cloth at the ready and off you go!
I started with spraying my skirting boards upstairs with the solution and just using my cloth to pat out any drips.
Next I sprayed around the window frames in all rooms and even opening the window and using a little spray on the ledges outside, again patting any drips with my cloth.
I also done the outside of my front door around any edges and gaps where spiders may creep in.
Spiders don’t like peppermint so this smell should keep them away from trying to enter your home! I used this tip once every week and a half in the months where they are rife! I can honestly say I didn’t have one spider!! I will be using this tip again as not only did it keep the crawlies away but it also gave my home a nice fresh smell.. win win!
I also recommend that regular hoovering contributes to keeping spiders from making your home theirs! So put those two tips together and bust away those leggy friends!
Thanks for reading as always.
