Homemade Non-Toxic Spider Repellent #DIY

I don't know about you but we sure are finding a lot of creepy crawly spiders in our house.  I blame the freezing cold Colorado winter and lets be real, our house is pretty cool.  We love visitors in our super cool home but NOT these visitors.  I needed to find a way to get these little guys to stay away and BE GONE but I wanted to do it with out chemicals because of the kids and the kitty.  I started doing some research and found out that spiders are not a fan of peppermint or soap!  Boom!  This I can create!
