If you hate spiders then this is one handy hack that you will want on your radar!

Facebook user Sylvia Crawford is being praised globally by arachnophobes after she shared a handy hit on how to keep the spiders away from your home.

She posted in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group and revealed that it cost just a few dollars.

After discovering that spiders are deterred by the smell of mint, Sylvia used some mint leaves that were about to go off in her fridge and popped it into a bottle of cheap antibacterial spray. She then sprayed it all over the house in order to deter the spiders from staying in her home.

She wrote in her post: "Had leftover packet of mint and small amount of cleaner left. Chopped mint and added to anti bac cleaner and filled with water.

"Sprayed under window sill outside and around the door . I watched the spiders run as i sprayed. They hate mint right enough. Some people use essential oils but i just thought i would use up what i had. [sic]"

There we go! Definitely one to try if you notice a few spiders creeping around your place.
