Houseplants > Aphids and Other Insects

Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. To repel insects from house- plants, put a drop of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid in a trigger- spray bottle, fill the rest of the bottle with water, shake well, and mist your household plants with the soapy water.

Listerine and Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. To repel insects from houseplants, mix one teaspoon Listerine antiseptic mouthwash (regular flavor] and one teaspoon Dawn Dish- washing Liquid in a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle, fill the rest of the bottle with water, shake well, and mist your house- plants with the solution once a week.

Tabasco Pepper Sauce, McCormick Garlic Powder, and Ivory Dishwashing Liquid. To control spider mites, white- flies, aphids, and thrips on houseplants, mix two teaspoons Tabasco Pepper Sauce, two teaspoons McCormick Garlic Powder, one teaspoon Ivory Dishwashing Liquid, and two cups water in a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle, shake well, and mist the leaves of the plants with the spicy solution.

Smirnoff Vodka. To keep aphids off houseplants, wash the pests off the plants with tap water and then dab the leaves with a cotton ball dipped in Smirnoff Vodka. (Do not use alcohol on delicate plants such as African violets, however.)
