Default Soft Soap for the control of whitefly under Glass

Hi everyone

Looking for advice, I have been told that soft soap is a reliable way to combat whitefly from my bananas that I'm over wintering under glass.

Firstly is this the same soft soap used for leather saddle?? If so, what sort of concentration do you use. If not what should I be looking for?

Secondly does anyone have first hand experience of using this?? How do you apply it and how successful is it?

Any info much appreciated as always

Thanks
Chris

I have had whiteflys too, since my plants do not fruit I use a systemic.
