Arrgggh!!! Sorry AliClark, but whoever wrote that article you read should be hung, drawn, & quartered (unless you read it wrong). Pure soap (of any type) should NEVER be applied to plants. It's certain death. Authentic & efficient organic pest spray recipes call for just a mere drop or two of dish soap added to the rest of the ingredients to act only as a spreader/adherent to help the spray ingredients stick to the plant. The soap itself does zip/zero/nada as far as killing the pests. Spraying 100% gloppy soap all over your plants effectively smothered the plants themselves; the pests are probably looking on doing a happy dance.
Thankfully, depending on WHERE YOU ARE LOCATED (posting that info is ALWAYS a good idea when asking for gardening help), you're at the perfect point in the season to begin again with quite a few Fall crops. And an added bonus is that Fall crops are far less susceptible to pests & diseases. Not immune, but less susceptible.
