Spray for killing insects

I would like to bring a plant indoors over winter. What do I use to spray the plant to kill insects, before bringing inside?

A good gentle spray is insecticidal soap. It kills most soft-bodied insects, but is relatively non-toxic. Check the plant closely for presence of chewing insects that may need harsher treatment.
