why Aphids? Whitefly? I dont know! boohoo Try washing it off with soapy water. Like dish detergent, if you dont have insecticidal soap. Make it weak-ish so it doesnt hurt the plant. Thats what I'd do in a pinch.

I sprayed them after I washed them, with clean water.

I have 15 plants and it took two hours to clean each leaf and stem!!!
