How to Get Rid of Ants with Something you Already Have in your Kitchen

Here’s how to get rid of those pesky ants with something you already have in your kitchen!

How to get rid of ants with something you already have in your kitchen


First, let me just say, please don’t tell Antman…I have a super crush on him and something tells me this would eliminate any chance of us being friends {{ It’s not you…it’s them}}.

Year after year, I wake up to a complete invasion of ants in my kitchen and I’m OVER IT! So I started doing some research, like any good Google mama would. And I tried everything. Non toxic, of course. I have 5 kids and 3 cats. And although sometimes I’d like some peace and quiet, I don’t want it from a jail cell.

So I tried everything. Read it all. Bought it all. I now have a personal debt to mint, lemon juice, cinnamon, and other stupid crap that doesn’t work. Although beating them with a broom while screaming GO AWAY was cheap and effective (Antman…I can’t wait for your movie next month, please don’t take this personally)…the ONLY thing that actually worked, was Dawn Detergent Soap. Yeah. The ONE thing I didn’t have to go to the store for. And the ONE thing that I tried last, of course.

So how do you use it?

1.  Find the points of entry. Squeeze Dawn liquid soap right into the crack, hole, wherever. You will literally see them scurry away. Now take it and squeeze a strip of soap all along the cracks in your doors. They hate it, it kills them almost instantly, and again…Antman…I love how you duped Falcon and showed your daughter real heroes take care of their babies and beat up mutant bad guys.

2. Grab a spray bottle and put like 3 inches of water in it. Squeeze a crap ton (very technical here) of Dawn Soap in there. Now spray/clean the counters, walls, crevices, cracks, or in my case…the whole dang kitchen and they will be GONE. Ants work from scent trails. The Dawn actually covers those scent trails and in a couple days…you will be ant free.

There you have it. Your ant problem is solved. Your kids can stay healthy. Sorry, I don’t have any magic spray to stop the “I’m bored” saga…but at least you won’t have to battle an entire army nation every morning!

  1. Hi there!

    I have the ant problem right now and desperately trying natural and non-toxic because of the kids and pets as well. What Dawn did you use? Is it the regular blue one or something different? Also, how long did this method work for you? Did you have to redo it every so often throughout the season? Please let me know! Thank you!!


      1. Thanks!! I have pest control coming practically every week and have diatomaceous earth covering everything and its still nuts.
