  I think you are mising the point.  While getting rid of scale and mealy bug may be the object, real satisfaction comes from killing them.  Let me give you an example: when I go out on my third floor balcony in the early morning and see snails on any of my plants, I pick them off and hurl them will all my might to the pavement below.  When they hit, the flesh and the shell go in opposite directions.  That is real satisfaction.

...a good strong spray of water will blast off scale and mealy
bug--about the least toxic solution imaginable. A few drops of a plain
dish washing soap is often used as a wetter.
