does this help?:

Home-made soap & oil spray for insect control
MIX: 2 1/2 TBSP cooking oil + 2 1/2 TBSP baby shampoo
Mix well in 1 gallon of water
NOTE: Shake well before and during application.
Water the plant well the day before you spray.
Do not spray during the heat of the day in full sun.
Reduce potential injury by rinsing the plant with fresh water a few
Hours after the soap spray application.
Thorough coverage of the pest is necessary so spray both sides of
The foliage thoroughly until it drips from the leaves.
Spray every 5-7 days as needed.
