Tiny White Bugs on Houseplants

I was wondering what I can use on my plants for pests? I've tried dish soap and water, but the bugs are still there. The bugs are very small and appear to be white colored. Help please all my house plants are dying.

Spray them with hot pepper sauce, good luck.

Filla spray bottle with 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water, that should kill them. Sounds like spider mites to me.

Take pot and plant outside. Remove from dirt. Wash plant and roots off, and repot in new pot and dirt.

I keep checking and use a wet toothbrush to brush the white away. Works well if vigilant!
