If you can dedicate some time to cleaning, the final result of a decluttering session will be ten times more satisfying. Decluttering uncovers a lot of stuff you probably weren’t expecting: papers and old pens that have fallen behind cabinets, glitter from childrens craft projects, and cobwebs – lots of cobwebs.
Spiders, like any bugs, love those cosy heaps of stuff we make. They make a happy, peaceful living in those little nooks and crannies. Don’t be too hard on spiders; they’re very good at keeping your house free of other bugs that no-one wants.
But it’s still your space, not theirs, so they have to accept a little bit of upheaval now and again. Don’t feel bad about ‘evicting’ your spiders; they’re very resourceful, and soon find somewhere else to go.
