There is really nothing that is effective as a repellent for spiders, but lemon scented furniture polish works a little, as does some pine scented fresheners. Spiders you will find indoors will not pose any threat to you, but dwelling on a fear will have you become arachnophobic. (you don't want that) I have a number of spiders in my place, but they never seem to bother anyone and have never been a nuisance.(save for a messy web) It is just too easy for me to just ignore the spiders. If I happen to find one in the bed, I just shoo it away, and if I find one crawling on me, I just coax it onto my hand and put it in a corner where it wont get squished. No big deal, but I am rather familiar with spiders, and don't mind their presence.
