Got ants? There are two easy ways to get them out of your house. First, mix 1/4 cup of peppermint castile liquid soap with a quart of water. Spray the minty, soapy mixture at entry points throughout the house where you see ants. Soap and peppermint is a combination ants hate. Next, take a look at your indoor houseplants, because unfortunately, the damp soil is the perfect environment for ants to nest. This may be the spot where all those ants are coming from. If they are, repot the plant in sterile soil and scrub the original pot clean.
