Let's see what it takes to make this soapy water.


  • 100% coconut soap preferably without superfat, as this type of soap is the most effective against pests. If you don't know what we are talking about, check out this post.
  • Water (preferably distilled).


  • 1 Grater
  • 1 Glass
  • 1 Glass container (heat resistant)
  • 1 Spray bottle

How To Do It

  1. Grate the coconut soap.
  2. Heat the water in the microwave. It should be warm, but there is no need to boil. You can heat enough water for each use and you can use a glass for measuring.
  3. Dissolve the soap in the water at the ratio of 1-1, that is, for each glass of water one tablespoon of grated soap.
  4. Let it cool and put the mixture in a spray bottle.

How To Apply

  • It should be applied in the morning or evening, avoiding the hours of greatest heat.
  • It should be sprayed on stems and leaves, not forgetting the back of the leaves where the insects are in greatest quantity.
  • Spray on soft-bodied insects such as aphids, mealybugs, caterpillars, lice, and moths.
  • Do not spray on beneficial insects to the garden, such as ladybugs.
  • Spray 1 to 2 times a week as needed.

Simple, quick, efficient, and totally natural! The best! :)
