We are pretty sure you've experienced this at least once in your life before: you're driving out to tapau
food when you catch a creepy crawly crawling its way across your car's dashboard from the corner of your eye.
If you, like us, are deathly afraid of cockroaches, it could be quite a scary experience going face-to-face with the creature in a confined space such as your car.
Don't worry; we just found a lifehack that would help you win those encounter every time.
Die, roaches, die!
A man from Pahang recently shared a simple tip on how to get rid of those pesky cockroaches residing in your car - and all you need is one item and one night.
The man, who goes by the name of Khushairi Borhanudin
, uploaded a post onto the 'Tukang Apa Hari Ini
' Facebook page with an easy step-to-step guide.
According to Khushairi, he suffers from a cockroach infestation in his car as his kids keep spilling and dropping stuff, from chocolate to ice cream, in the car.
He then decided to buy a can of Fumakila Vape
insect repellent (we swear this is not ad avertorial!) for RM7.90 from a speed mart nearby and went to war on 'em roaches.
To force the cockroaches out of their hiding spots and die a slow death, Khushairi shared that all you need to do is to spray the insect repellant two or three times under your car seats
Khushairi recommends doing it at night, right before you go to bed, so that the insect repellant have time to stew in your car.
If all goes according to plan, the fume from the repellant in a confined space would force all the roaches out and kill them.
All that's left to do after that is to collect your spoils of war in the morning, Khushairi said.
And judging by the pictures shared by Khushairi, we think Operasi Bunuh Lipas Banyak-Banyak
was an overwhelming success:
Kushairi's helpful post has since gone viral on social media, having been shared more than 2,400 times.
His post prompted other netizens to give it a go, and those who tried it confirmed that it works. Some even mentioned that this lifehack kills not just cockroaches, but other insects such as ants that are calling your car their home.
