Soap and Plants
I recently discovered spider mites on some of my vegetable plants: tomato, bell pepper, squash, cucumber. I tried to spray with soapy water and the next day all the plants had leaves that turned black or yellow and wilted. What is the reason for this, and can it be fixed?

Many dish soaps are starting to add bleach to their mix. You need to make sure not to use a dish soap that has bleach.
