Introduction: How to Kill a Cockroach on the Cheap and Not Poison Your Cat at the Same Time.

Even though roaches will be living in dome houses made of Tupperware™ and chewing on our bones after the nuclear holocaust, doesn't mean they have a right to take over your house and your wallet.

Step 1: Find Yourself Some Dishsoap.

It doesn't have to be UltraGel Japanese dishsoap but you might get some geek points if it is.

Step 2: Find a Spray Bottle, Add Soap and Water to the Bottle.

Ratios don't matter, it is up to you.

Step 3: Find Roach and Spray Liberally With Soapy-Water-Gun-of-Doom Until Maker Is Met.

After pegging your target with soapy water, the prey will flip on its back.

Do not be fooled...this is a trick. Spray once more for good measure and get ready for the roach to run.

Step 4: Wipe Up Soapy Wet Spot With a Rag and Be Sure to Toss the Roach in a Receptacle.

This may result in the cleanest spot in your house/apartment.

Happy hunting.
