Homemade Insecticidal Soap Formula

sandandsun(9a FL)August 23, 2014

Today I visited John Starnes' blog: Rosegasms

And I found his link to an article he wrote for the St. Petersburg Times.
In his article he provides a formula or recipe for homemade insecticidal soap. Note that the insecticidal soap recipe is the recipe that adds vegetable oil.

I haven't tried it; I just found it. Please report if it works as well for you as the commercially available products.

My thanks in advance to Mr. Starnes.
