Vinegar is incredibly versatile and finds its place in various natural home remedies, from pickling cucumbers to controlling weeds and even deterring spiders.
To create a spider deterrent spray, blend equal parts of store-bought (5% acidity) vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Shake well to thoroughly combine. Apply the mixture directly to spiders, their cobwebs, and any areas where they are typically found. Pay special attention to cracks and crevices in the floor, especially near doors, and reapply once a week for continued effectiveness.
