Could you reference brands for the article on making fungicide? - baking soda/liquid soap & water. Specifically looking at addressing white powdery mold on plants. Thank you for the info & source.

Murphy's Oil Soap is a good choice.

In my experience, any kind of mild dish soap works perfectly. Nothing with special degreasers or bleach or anything. You can also make your own soap concentrate by soaking a cake of castile soap (if you can find it, no everyone carries it) in a gallon of water for a week or two, shaking now and then, then use a teaspoon of that to a pint of water, just as with any liquid soap.

Your response was, "Murphy’s Oil Soap is a good choice"
which is expensive.
do you others like possibly Palmalove or off the shelf brands that are less expensive.
