September marked the beginning of spider season in the UK, and throughout the autumn Britons can expect to see more eight-legged critters scuttling around their homes. Whether you are an arachnophobe or simply don’t like the idea of spotting the pest within your abode, Ceith Griffith, a TikTok user with 1.4M followers has a simple solution to “keep spiders from coming into your house”.
Not only does the hack use just two ingredients, it’s also a low-cost and eco-friendly option.
Ceith explained: “It only takes two things, is very simple, safe and non-toxic.
“All you need is 10 ounces of water and cayenne red pepper.”
Cayenne red pepper can be bought from most supermarkets, with Sainsbury’s selling their own brand of the spice for 90p.
