Mum’s genius 50-cent Kmart spider hack goes viral

Mum’s genius 50-cent Kmart spider hack goes viral

Arachnophobes around the country have been celebrating as they’ve found a new way to tackle their fears – and it only costs 50 cents.

Kmart’s “egg hunt grabber” has been hailed a hero as it helps banish 8-legged creatures easily from your home.

Everyone has attempted the old glass and book trick, where you trap a spider underneath a glass, slide something flat underneath, hope that nothing escapes and then throw the entire thing out of the window.

It’s terrifying and anxiety-inducing, but there’s no need to panic anymore.

A video was recently posted to a Kmart Facebook group, demonstrating how to use the contraption to remove spiders from your home.

All you need to do is use the grabber from a distance to capture the spider inside the cup, then take outside and release.

The video has garnered hundreds of likes and comments from those who cannot wait to get their hands on the affordable item.

Unfortunately, it seems to be out of stock, so if your grandkids don't already have one, you may need to wait till next Easter.

In the meantime, keep using the good ol’ glass and book trick!
