Continued use of soapy water strips the protective cuticle off of plant leaves - this can result in the leaves burning. The occasional use of soapy water to kill small insects such as aphids, scale and mealy bug is okay - as long as you don't do it too frequently.
The long term effects of soapy water on the soil are not good, this causes a layer to build up on the soil and also effects osmosis in the soil - which can cause plants to deteriorate and die
Soapy water is not bad for your plants.
does soapy water water kill a plant yes
Soapy water can be good for some plants. It's best to use soap water that is from a washing machine and does not contain borax from laundry products.
It should not affect it, if it is gray water, like water you wash your hands with, or tub water, nothing with chlorine bleach in it or cleaning chemicals
Soapy water is water which has soap dissolved in it.
Not exaclty, i have tried this before. I watered one with normal water and one with soapy water. The soapy watered one wasn't very effected. In fact, it is still living(: and the normal watered one is too. but there really isn't much of a difference between the two of them. So yes, soapy water does affect a plant, but a very small effect. Meaning, the plant would still live for a pretty long time, if you watered it at its regularly needed basis. :D
Soapy water would bother most plants As long as you did not have bleach in the wash, I don't see why not
Put soapy water on it. Put soapy water on it. Put soapy water on it.
Soapy water is Alkaline =) Your welcome =P
Soapy water is Alkaline so it is a base.
it will keep certain bugs away from all types of plants.
No no no! The soapy water would damage the plants. It would remove the slightly oily surface protection that all plants have and they would immediately become vulnerable to all sorts of predators and damaging rays from the sun. It would also change the nature of the soil around the plants, making it soapy, and that is not what plants enjoy!
by giving the plants water
as it is water already it cannot melt but will evaporate whether or not it is soapy or regular water
Please soak this in soapy water.
Actually, soap isn't "soapy" unless it has water on it. So I suppose water makes soap "soapy."
Because the plants can die from bad water.
Dirty water as in just dirt and water doesn't affect plants. If the water has toxins then it could harm or kill the plant.
to be creative
If the water is too hot it will kill the plants.
Yes! It can dry out your plants! It's not good for plants. You want to water your plants with FRESH WATER.
