Easy remedies that prevent cockroaches and bugs at home (Kitchen)
Have you ever come across those creepy crawling cockroaches and bugs in your kitchen, just after a few hours of cooking a meal? There’s nothing more disgusting than finding these creepy bugs and cockroaches running around the kitchen, but have you ever thought, how these bugs find their way to your kitchen despite cleaning the kitchen everyday?
Well, this might freak you out, but even after cleaning or wiping the kitchen with water everyday, these cockroaches can breed under the sink, drains and corners of cabinets or below the slabs, but cleaning the kitchen with the right ingredients can keep these at bay.
Not only are these bugs and crawling insects disgusting but they can also be harmful for health and lead to several diseases and cause food poisoning. Thus, cleaning the kitchen in the right way is essential and using the right ingredients while cleaning can keep these insects at bay. Here a few easy hacks that always work.
- Hot Water and Vinegar
This is a simple hack; you don’t need to look around for ingredients everywhere as you can simply find these in your kitchen. Just take some hot water, mix 1 portion of white vinegar and stir well, wipe slabs and clean around the cook tops with this solution and pour this solution in the kitchen drains in the night, this will disinfect the pipes and drains and would keep cockroaches from climbing up into the kitchen.
- Hot Water Lemon and Baking Soda
Another easy kitchen hack that you can use to keep the disgusting crawlers at bay is by mixing 1 lemon, 2 tablespoon baking soda in 1litre hot water, stir it well and pour in the drain outlets or wash the area below the sink or slabs with this solution to stop the breeding of cockroaches in the kitchen.
- Boric Acid and Sugar
This age-old remedy works wonders, just mix some boric acid and sugar, then spread it across the places where you find cockroaches breeding. While the sugar lures the bugs, boric acid kills them immediately. So, next time you come across these bugs and cockroaches try this hack.
- Essential Oils
If you used these oils for skin care or other healing purposes, then you would be amazed to know that essential oils like peppermint oils and lavender oil can help in keeping bugs at bay. Just spray some essential oils around the kitchen and cabinets, and allow the aroma to spread its magic.
