While there are several poisons and traps on the market that can effectively rid your home of the pesky critters, they can also come with a slew of potentially dangerous side effects (especially if accidentally ingested by humans or animals).
BUT – why take the risk when there’s a cheap, all-natural remedy, that you may already have in your home?
Seem too good to be true? Try it for yourself!
Simply brew a cup of peppermint tea and leave the bag in the rooms where you’ve seen spiders and mice. For best result, put tea bags in each corner.
If tea isn’t your forte, you can achieve the same results with essential oil. Put 10 – 15 drops of peppermint oil in a spray bottle full of water and spray it around the baseboards. Not only does it help to keep spiders and mice away, your home is going to smell fantastic! For spiders, you can also use cinnamon and lemon oil.
