BAKING SODA TRICK- Take a bowl and mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 cup baking soda. Sprinkle it in the areas where you think cockroaches can hide like in the corners of house, in sinks etc. Do this before bedtime. You will see cockroaches decreasing over time. The baking soda mixes with stomach acids and causes death eventually.
LAUNDRY TRICK- Cockroaches breathe through their skin and a brilliant way to kill them is block their breathing! Grab a laundry detergent, some oil and fabric softener. Add 3 tablespoons laundry detergent, 3 tablespoons fabric softener and 2 tablespoons oil to 1 cup water and stir. Spray it directly on the cockroaches.
HERBAL SPRAY- In a saucepan, add 1 cup water, 4-5 bay leaves and simmer for 10 minutes with a lid. On cooling down, add in some tea tree oil and peppermint oil. Transfer it to a spray bottle and spray it frequently on areas where you think roaches reside.
