Natural Repellants and Pesticides

Natural Repellants and Pesticides

by Kathy Lee

I was reading yesterday about Natural pesticides and repellants which went something like this.

Lemon sented cleaners like pine sol and lemon pledge will repell spiders. I believe lemon juice was mentioned also.

I also read the lavender will also do the same thing.

Well I have decided to clean my house from top to bottom with anything that has lemons or lavender. I want to see if it will really work, as I have been over taken by these eight legged creatures. So my experiment is underway.

However these cleaners are not exactally what I was looking for because the are not natural. The article also mention a neem oil that I will also look for as an alternative to the chemicals.

Essential Oils for Cleaning
by: chris3win

I have been making my own all natural super high quality cleaners from essential oils, and vinegar or vodka or just plain filtered water. Depending on what you want to clean or repel or heal... the creativity to make your own 'stuff' is wonderful.
