We love having guests in our home. But mice, not so much. If the little rodents have a tendency to invite themselves over and crash the party, here is a fix to let them know they are persona non grata and prevent them from coming back.
The best part is that the hack is all natural, so you don’t have to worry about any toxins or poisons, or who comes into contact with it. Plus, you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.
Like many animals, mice have a strong sense of smell, so we’re going to use that to our advantage.
Grab some little organza bags and throw in one tablespoon of red pepper flakes, the same amount of whole cloves, a cinnamon stick, and some star anise. The scent of the spices will ward off the mice—and leave your home smelling lovely!
We’re not sure exactly how they do it, but mice have a knack of squeezing themselves through the tiniest of holes and into the smallest of spots. So, be sure to place the bags in cupboards, by garage doors, and any place with an opening in the foundation.
