Anyone making their own home made plant wash? Is it even possible to make a home made plant wash?

Are you talking about a spray of water with a few drops of liquid soap or canola oil?

Thanks for the reply. Could be, just looking for ways to save money. I wondered what was in the commercial plant wash that I could duplicate. Finally was able last week to speak to Howard and this is what he recomended.

For insect control: soap and water for aphids. Use 1tsp to 1tbs per gallon. Lemon Joy with a touch of orange oil.

Commercial product: developed using nano technology used as a cleaner by the Navy. Found it worked as a follage cleaner as well.

There's nothing at that link.

Plant wash looks like shampoo and water.

I make a tea out of oleander leaves and the flowers that have started to wilt. I mix the oleanders with two good snorts of Shiner Bock some orange oil and some soap. Put all this into a clear jar ( I use an old pickle jar ) and let the sun do its thing. Seems to work good on any bug or critter. Make sure to wash any vegies before consumption.
