And no, I didn’t take a picture of any of the ones I killed while they were alive. I had a bad enough time searching the web (no pun intended) for photos *shudder*.

Anyway, I was finally able to track down an empty spritz bottle in the dollar store. After buying a bottle of Fabulous Frannie’s citronella oil I was ready to begin Potions class.

The recipe I followed for my very own spider repellent is as follows: 2 tbsp vodka (it helps the essential oil diffuse better), ten drops of essential oil and water to the top of the bottle. Voilà!

Now my room and bathroom smell lovely ^^ but of course I will have to get back to you all on the effectiveness of the spray. I really don’t want to kill any more spiders… 14 is enough death T_____T.
