Getting Rid of Aphids and Whitefly?

There was a post awhile back about making your own pest control out of soap and water. I need a pest control for aphids and whitefly. Can someone help me?

Any time you use soap or any other chemical on a plant, including Safer Soap, it sets your plant back and it takes a while for it to recouperate.

To get rid of aphids, I use a water hose and spray them off the bottom of the leaves of the plants, they won't climb back up.

You will probably have to use a chemical to get rid of the whiteflies:

When I get either one of them, I use a nozzle on the hose that I can spray really hard.. The water smacks their soft bodies hard & kills them. Now spidermites is a whole different thing.
