My navel orange tree now living in my sunroom is not looking or doing well.

It has many “webs” with tiny ?insects in webs and on leaves. How can I best treat it? I was going to spray with a mixture of water and Dawn dish detergent but don’t know if this is good and what amount to mix. Then I was to wash off in the shower. I am very worried about losing this tree. It did so well outdoors . I just noticed this condition!
Thank you for any advice.
