Q.Aphids on a Small Young Houseplant

Anonymous added on January 16, 2014 | Answered

I rescued a small young chrysanthemum plant that was thrown away, brought it inside and now see that it has aphids. I have segregated it from my other houseplants and want to get rid of the aphids NOW! I can see that they are sapping the life from this little one. Suggestions? I will go put it under running water over the toilet as a start. Thought about dusting it with something from the kitchen: flour? baking soda?
