Homemade Non-Toxic DIY Spider Repellent
I don’t know about you but I am sure finding a lot of creepy crawly spiders in my house. I blame the crazy Colorado winter and lets be real, my house is pretty cool. Hey, I love visitors in my super cool home but NOT these visitors. I needed to find a way to get these little guys to stay away and BE GONE but I wanted to do it with out chemicals because of the kids and the cats. I started doing some research and found out that spiders are not a fan of peppermint or soap! Boom! This I can create!
What you will need:
15 drops Peppermint Oil
1 tsp Dish Soap (free and clear)

I am definitley trying this. We have tons of spiders because we live near the woods.
Such a great idea! Mixing some up this weekend to try out. My kids will be thrilled (they're tired of finding spiders in the house)
We just have the ocassional spider, but my son is terrified of them! An actual infestation would be awful.
We do have problems with spiders from time to time and this is really good info to have. I am going to try this. Thanks!
Will have to try this. We have some now and then.
What a great (smelling) idea! All of my household cleaning products are non-toxic, so I really like this option to get rid of the creepy crawly types without causing potential harm to people and pets.

What size is your spray bottle?
I was also wondering what size the spray bottle is – I can't tell from the picture.
I have a 2 year old and I keep finding little spider bites on him and finding spiders in his room. would it be okay to spray this on his pillows, and sheets?
How often do you have to spry to keep the spiders away?
why is the soap needed? if they don't like the EO, do we need the soap?
Has anyone else now tried this? Has it been effective???
It is VERY effective! I have not seen one spider since I sprayed this. I just reapply every few weeks.
How often do you repeat this?
Sounds great, but have always been told essential oils need to go in glass bottles.
I am totally petrified of spiders – I am going to try this.
This sounds like such a good spray I need to try making it I hate spiders
