Put two caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like Heaven. It's actually a common realtor trick.
Spiders hate peppermint! Put some peppermint oil in a squirt bottle with a little water and spray your garage and all door frames... interesting!I knew it helped keep mice away but i didnt know it worked for spiders too.
