Did you know that soap is an excellent insecticide?

It may sound strange, but soap can be used against many garden pests. It is probably one of the oldest pesticides, cheap and less polluting than usual insecticides.


How to prepare

  1. Use pure homemade soap or cheap perfume-free soap
  2. Grate soap to obtain 2 tablespoons of flakes
  3. Mix the soap with 1 liter of water and shake well until the soap dissolves
  4. Apply the liquid by pulverizing it directly onto plants attacked by aphids or other pests
  5. The recipe is very efficient, especially in case of insects with a soft body


Don’t use detergent instead od soap!

Don’t use a higher concentration, as it will damage plants.

If you use recipients of other cleaning liquids, wash them well before use.
