Spider Mites on Strawberry Pot Strawberries

I've recently had an outbreak of spider mites on several of the plants in my strawberry pot. I tried a neem oil spray, but I've still got a lot of the mites and I don't want to kill my plants with the spray. I've read that moisture is bad for spider mites, so I'm spraying the plants with water from a spray bottle several times a day.
Is the water alone likely to be an effective control for the spider mites? Should I continue to use the neem oil? How often? Is there something else I can do to get rid of the mites? I don't want to spend a lot on one remedy after another, so if there is something that will be effective I'd like to go straight to that.

Water alone will work but you have to blast the underneaths of every

Read the label and it will answer all these questions. I never found Neem oil to be very useful. When I get spider mites I blast the undersides of the leaves with a very strong blast of hose. It forces the mites off. It doesn't kill them, which is nice IMO.
