10 ways to rid spiders for good without any chemicals

2. Cinnamon. Sprinkle cinnamon around the perimeter of your house to prevent spiders from coming inside, as recommended by Common Sense Homesteading.
3. Minty cotton balls. Dip cotton balls in mint essential oil and place them underneath or outside your home, says Common Sense Homesteading.
4. Chestnuts. Common Sense Homesteading recommends keeping chestnuts on your windowsills to deter spiders.
5. Saltwater. Common Sense Homesteading says saltwater is an excellent spider killer. Spray a solution made from 1 gallon of warm water and 1 ounce salt directly onto spiders and spider nests.
6. White vinegar. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and water, and use the mixture to spray in cracks and crannies, says Natural Living Ideas.
7. Citrus peel. Rub citrus peels on baseboards, windowsills and bookshelves to prevent spiders from coming into the house. Natural Living Ideas says spiders detest citrus with such fervor that even lemon-scented furniture polish will do the trick. Watch the video to see how this works:
8. Cedar hangers. If you find spiders lurking in your closet, switch to cedar hangers, as suggested by Natural Living Ideas.
