I don't have access to a hose, so what can I use to be sure there are no bugs on my plants? What are some household items I can use to clean my plants before bringing them indoors?

Use a spray bottle filled with water to rinse the leaves and plants.

You also can treat plants with Neem Oil.

Neem Oil is safe for people and pets and will take care of insects and fugus.
