Aldi Is Selling A Spider Repellent Spray

It's that time of year when people's homes become breeding grounds for creepy crawlies.

With the summer drawing to a close, hoards of frisky spiders are coming out of the woodwork and into our living rooms looking for a good old bonk.

But fortunately for us all, Aldi might have just the thing to keep them at bay.

The budget supermarket chain is now stocking the Zero In Spider Repellent Spray, a deterrent that promises to do the trick.

According to the product's description, the natural, poison-free repellent 'creates an invisible barrier that deters spiders' and lasts up to three weeks.

But not only that, it's an absolute snip at £3.99 ($5.50).

The item was shared recently on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook page. And the prospect of removing the critters from their homes for good excited many of its followers.

Commenting on the post, one user said: "I have a very large Spider Repellant Spray. Worth its weight in gold!"

Another chimed in: "Somehow can't help but feel like this is 'monster under the bed' spray but for adults."

Others pointed out, though, that it's important to check the label if you have other pets in the house to make sure they won't be affected by the spray.

But if you don't fancy forking out £4 on it, you could always make your own.

A TikToker recently shared a life-changing 'hack' for anyone scared of spiders, and it uses just a couple of cheap household products. All you need is some peppermint oil, water and a spray bottle.

Posting the 'spider hack' online, Heather White (@sour_patch_chick95) said: "For all of you that do not like spiders, this is a hack.

"You can put peppermint oil and water in a spray bottle. Spray it on the outside of doors, window frames - they'll stay out of your house."

After being posted a couple of years ago, the post has racked up more than 226,000 views and 22,000 likes, along with hundreds of comments from people vowing to give it a go - or backing the idea after trying it out already.

"It works!!!" one person wrote, adding: "First apartment I've had with no bug problem and the reviews on this place were all about bugs. I did this and I'm going to assume it worked."

Another said: "I did this, and it definitely worked."

According to Country Living, to try the method out you should start by vaccuming and dusting your home before to get rid of any pre-existing webs.

After mixing the two-part solution by adding 20 drops of peppermint oil to a bottle, spray the solution around the house, especially in corners, before repeating once a week - or every few days if you spot any spiders.
