For those who mix up their own insecticidal soap versus buying the premixed stuff, I learned something recently that I thought IÂd pass along in case others like me, never really questioned Dishwashing Soap / Detergent / Liquid on store shelves.
-Liquids labelled dishwashing "soap" are "soap" based;
-Liquids labelled dishwashing "detergent" are, like the label says, detergents (not soap);
-Liquids labelled dishwashing "liquid" could be either soap or detergent or a combination. Check the ingredients well before using.
To make up an effective batch of insecticidal soap you need to use dishwashing soap.
Hopefully IÂm not the only one who didnÂt put 2 and 2 together all these years LOL.
