Does Lemon Pledge keep spiders away?
I've read this in a few places and I live in the woods by a lake. The spiders don't seem like there hurting anything but ive never been bit yet. I dont want to spray a pesticide with a baby in the house so im wondering if anyone has ever tried lemon pledge. I read that it works but I dont want the sweet smell to attract more spiders. Anybody tried it?
