DIY Natural Spider Repellent, 3 Ways!
Don’t like spiders in your house but don’t want to use chemicals to get rid of them? Here’s 3 simple ways to make your own DIY Natural Spider Repellent!
You feel me, right? I just don’t do them…. No way. No how. Not happening.
If I see one, I run away like the sissy girl that I am and scream for my husband to come kill it.
So, the best thing for me is to prevent them from coming into my house in the first place. And since restraining orders don’t work against those 8 legged freaks – spider repellent is the next best thing.
Today, I’m sharing how to make DIY Natural Spider Repellent 3 different ways. All of these will repell those icky things… but also not be toxic to your kids or pets – which is definitely a good thing.
You’ll need a spray bottle for each one of these. Just fill the bottle with one of these natural spider repellents listed below & spray around your doors, windows, & in room corners.
- Place 5 cloves of smashed fresh garlic in a spray bottle per 2 cups of water. Let it sit for a few hours before using for best results.
- Spiders hate peppermint and citrus! Mix about 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil OR a citrus essential oil (orange essential oil, lemon essential oil, or lime essential oil) to every 2 cups of water. You can also add a few drops of dishwashing soap or Castile soap for a little extra power.
- Blend a small handful tomato leaves with 2 cups of water & 1 teaspoon of cornstarch.
With these DIY repellents, the spiders will not be adding your house to their travel bucket list any time soon 😉
