How do you keep spiders off your patio furniture?

I've tried spraying the patio furniture with peppermint essential oil and also a mix of eucalyptus and tea tree oils. Doesn't seem to have any effect.

I am constantly removing spider webs and we do use the furniture daily.

I found and killed a black widow spider a few weeks ago. My neighbour got bit by one and wound up in the ER with a very nasty reaction to the bite.

I also spray HomeDefense but that only seems to work on spiders if they happen to be there when you are spraying.
