Keep Spiders Out Of Your Home With This Easy Dish Soap Hack
While there are multiple chemically-laden pesticides that can obliterate spiders, you may not want to inhale or live with harmful chemicals in your home.
Fortunately, citrus-based dish soap is a household item that can effectively repel spiders and keep them away for good, as spiders, like many insects, avoid the scent of citrus.
To naturally ward off spiders, add a few drops of dish soap to a dish filled with water. Leave the fragrant mixture on your counters or in places where you have seen spiders.
You can also slice up lemons and oranges and leave them in trays around the house, or rub fresh citrus peels along the molding, walls, windowsills, and surfaces where spiders hide.
