Easy Home Remedy for Ahpids

Soap, Water and a spray bottle is a great home remedy for Ahpids.

But today I stumble upon an new ingredient thanks to Dorest Fincha, add vegetable oil.

Hmm.. I knew to use dish soap, but I had never considered adding the oil. Oil is often used as a sticking agent when applying herbicides and pesticides to plants. I bet that works well here too. Good info.
