OK, I'm confused and I'd like straightened out. 

A surfactant is a pesticide? Would someone explain the difference between a 
spreader-sticker and a surfactant. Sometimes I read of using a detergent as a 
surfactant. My local Growers Coop advised using common vegetable oil as a 
surfactant. Detergent and oil are about as opposite as can be, aren't they?

Help this dummy out.
