Living here in Alabama is fantastic, and most of us would never move anywhere else. But despite the frequently sunny weather, fantastic food, and friendly people, there's one minor inconvenience that we experience living here in the south: spiders. Sure, these eight-legged creepy crawlies may show up in many parts of the country, but it seems many make their home here in Alabama, and we all know the shock and surprise of finding them in our vehicles. Now, we know they're just looking for a nice place to make their home, but most of us would probably prefer they make it somewhere else. Luckily, Ford has a handy tip to help keep these arachnid stowaways away from your vehicle, and all it takes is a little peppermint oil.

Yes, peppermint oil, a key ingredient in sweet treats the world over, may in fact be the key to keeping your car spider-free. You see, while many of us may delight at the smell and taste of peppermint, our arachnid friends absolutely loath it, and will avoid it at any cost. So, by spraying a bit of peppermint oil mixed with water around your car, particularly around the mirrors and air vents, you can keep the spiders away and enjoy a fresh, minty smelling car to boot!

Of course, keeping the spiders away is just one way to maximize your experiences with your Ford vehicle. So, if you'd like to learn more helpful tips and tricks to make the most of your car, truck, or SUV, feel free to visit us at Jim Peach Motors to speak with some of the knowledgeable folks in our service center today!
