5. Mouthwash

A solution commonly used as an antiseptic for gargling can also work as a disinfectant in your home. Dissolve it with water and spray it into the corner or wall where the cockroaches normally nest.

6. Grease (fat)

Put the food in a clear jar with the inside of the jar covered with grease. Leave it overnight. The cockroaches will be trapped into the jar because of the slippery walls by the grease.

7. Bleach

Bleach is a common type of disinfectant common in the home. Dissolve into water and pour over the floor or kitchen sink. Cockroaches will leave their nests in sewers, kitchens and other places.

8. Lemon

Lemons have anti pathogenic properties or prevent bacterial growth. Add the lemon juice to the water while mopping the parts of your house. Germs can die and cockroaches will leave because they cannot stand the smell.

9. Borax

Sprinkle borax in corners, cracks, kitchen sinks, kitchen pipes and bathrooms and leave overnight. Cockroaches that roam at night will make contact with borax and will dry the inside of the body and its nature as toxic to cockroaches. The body of a borax-contaminated cockroach will return to the nest and participate in spreading the poison there indirectly.

10. Soap solution

Create a concentrated soap solution and spray directly onto the cockroach. Most of the cockroaches will die soon because the soap solution will clog their pores that make cockroaches hard to breathe.

11. Mixture of pepper, garlic and onions

Make a mixture of one tablespoon of pepper, one garlic clove, and unions. Destroy and add one liter of water. Add soap solution if necessary, spray into the kitchen where the common cockroaches appear. It can also be a mix for mopping floors because cockroaches will not stand the smell

12. Cucumber
