Simple mealy bug solution

3:1 Water : 70% Rubbing Alcohol was the suggestion.

I used 3 : .5 +.5 using white vinegar to be a tad more gentle.

Spray bottle on mist. Sprayed leaves til just dripping.
2 times in one week. Once Sunday. Once Thursday.
No more mealy bugs.

The various plants did fine.

Aloe, jasmine, geranium and cactus
