Along Came a Spider part 2..


Not one spider in the bathroom since my prior post on July 22 of Along Came a Spider.
 The answer was natural repellents for spiders..found by Google Search
5 drops of Peppermint Oil
4 drops of Dawn Dish Detergent
Warm water in a spray bottle
Shake and Spray all crevices and places they might visit.
IT WORKS.. and it smells good.
 Tea Tree, Citrus, Lavender Oils all work. I chose peppermint because of scent allergies.
Received from Amazon in 2 days. $7.00 was the price.

I need to make that spider mixture! What is soda pressing? OH, it compacts the empty can. Di you buy it? Probably not, I think you don't drink much soda?

Sound like a perfect solution for those who are scare of spiders. Yes, i can imagine the lovely scent now

Mersad said...

Hello Sandra!:) This is a good tip. I have some Tea tree oil, but I wonder if it works on other creepy crawlies, because if it doesn't, I need the spiders to catch them!!:) I LOL at your last image and caption,...just wasn't expecting such a funny ending. Thanks for the laughs.:)

Spiders are abounding lately. Essential oils; so many uses.

Hello, I will have to remember this repellent recipe. I like peppermint and lavender scents. I've been seeing some spiders lately. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Mildred said...

Thanks for the "recipe." The other day I dropped one crumb on the floor and ants appeared immediately!

Madi and Mom said...

MOLMOLMOL IFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF I snuggle you better be quick 'cause it is a brief encounter and is best when I've been sleeping. In other words a sneak attack. MOL
Hugs madi

Took me a while but I just got that last shot lol.

Dory and the Mama said...

LOL...soda pressing!!

I might have to give that spider repellent recipe, our spiders are out of control here in Northern California!

jandi said...

I do love spiders... they catch mozzies... but my husband is terrified of them... so if they get too close for comfort I have to capture them and release them into the garden... we once had a black button spider nest in our garden which I just let be... love your joke at the end!

I love peppermint. Good to know that spiders don't! :)

Mevely317 said...

I adore the scent of peppermint, and I'm all for natural repellents. (These little furbabies' noses are lots closer to the floor than ours!)

Question: Is Dawn detergent really that good? I've been using Palmolive for decades, but lately I've heard several people say they're using Dawn.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Okay....I'm gonna hafta get this stuff to mix up my own!! I hate spiders.

Gail said...

I wrote that down! Glad it works.

Ann said...

sodapressing....ROFL
I wonder what other creepy crawlys those oils will keep away

Felicia said...

might have to try your spider repellant.

diane b said...

Now you have a remedy its not sodapressing.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I don't know about all the oils- haven't tried too many. But lavender oil blended with coconut oil is something I use use at night to help me sleep. I haven't heard of this for spiders.

carolann said...

All my life it seems spiders have been crawling. Since here in the apt. None. Thank goodness.

Snakes and spiders and black flies I despise. Yuks.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sounds like a win-win situation for you, Sandra, no more spiders and a pleasant scent as well. And, I did like the "depressing" photo.

pattisjarrett said...

That's good news about the spider deterrent. Sodapressing! For the spider, right?

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Thanks for the recipe.
