Cleaning: Mrs Hinch fans share best home remedies for getting rid of ants
“I have sprinkled around the entrances, poured some onto kitchen paper or cotton ball and wiped around the doors, base boards etc.”
Becky Bell provided another easy deterrent: “I had them a few weeks ago and someone said they don’t like mint!
“So I got a little mint plant from Tesco and sat it on my kitchen surface and I don’t know if it’s the change in the weather or the plant but I haven’t seen one ant since.”
Viv Roberts shared another home remedy that stopped ants from coming back: “They hate the smell of cinnamon.
“I’ve used it a few times, sprinkle generously around where they seem to be coming from and leave it for a good few days.”
She concluded: “They didn’t come back in my own experience.”
