One of the most common household items can prove to be a potent repellent for pests like rats and spiders.


According to Do You Remember, tea bags can be used in creative ways to keep such critters from entering our homes. To ensure that our homes are free of pests, the following steps can be taken:

The very first step is obviously to make a cup of hot tea. Take a peppermint tea bag for this purpose and prepare some tea.

Next, once the tea bag is properly soaked into the tea, pull it out and place it in the corners of the house where you expect those pests to come and foster.

Look about your house and identify if there are any holes or other kinds of openings from where the chances of a rat or a spider entering are pretty high. Now put a tea bag in that spot as well.


Obviously, if you have a lot of places around the house where you might want to put the tea bags, you will need to make more than one cup of tea for this purpose.
