According to a hadith reported by Ad-Daarimi
“Shaytaan will come out of your house like a donkey breaking wind, and he will never come back in until the next morning.”
By reciting what??
‘Abd-Allaah ibn Masood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “A man from among the Companions of Muhammad met a man from among the jinn. They wrestled, and the human knocked down the jinn. The human said to him,‘You look small and skinny to me, and your forearms look like the front paws of a dog. Do all the jinn look like this, or only you?’
He said, ‘No, by Allaah, among them I am strong, but let us wrestle again, and if you defeat me I will teach you something that will do you good.’ The human said, ‘Fine.’ He said, ‘Recite, ‘Allaah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever-living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists…’
[Aayat al-Kursi – al-Baqarah 2:255 – interpretation of the meaning].
The human said, ‘Fine.’
He said, ‘You will never recite this in your house but the Shaytaan will come out of it like a donkey breaking wind, and he will never come back in until the next morning.”
