We all want to feel comfortable in our homes, but there are times when we can feel violated. I’m not talking about another person coming in, I’m talking about little critters, such as mice and spiders. If you have those unwelcome visitors, fixing it is as easy as using a bag of tea. The type of tea you would use is Peppermint.
The method for making this work is easier than you could possibly imagine. Simply brew a cup of peppermint tea and then leave the bag in the room where spiders and mice have been a problem. You even get to enjoy the cup of tea! Put the tea bag in a corner, so it is best if you use 4 tea bags, one in each corner.
If you aren’t one to brew some tea, you can get 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.
