What are some safe and cheap ways of getting rid of spiders without using chemicals?

I keep finding spiders in my place of residence and I have arachnophobia. I need some cheap ways of getting rid of them without using chemicals. I own a dog, so it needs to be safe for dogs.
Thanks.

Look for hedge balls in the grocery store. I'm not sure if they are still available. You'll normally find them in the produce section. They are green round and rough textured. They repel spiders and some other pests.

Try looking into some Raid products and try to find out if it's safe for dogs. If no luck, try google. I also have arachnophobia, so i understand completely how you feel.

I'm scared of spiders too, so I usually throw things at them until I actually hit one.

Most hardware stores have sticky traps. The last two I used down stairs were completely covered with spiders and other insects. Just pick-up the trap and throw away.

Osage orange trees bear a fruit that resembles a very large orange. On top of being pleasant smelling to us it's repulsive to spiders.
