3. Benefits of Soap in Weed-Killer

Soap increases the absorption rate of homemade weed killer. Liquid soaps such as detergent or dish-washing soap work best. The soap breaks down the waxy surface of weeds, so the weeds become more susceptible to other ingredients in the weed-killing solution. An additional benefit of soap is a distinctive appearance or scent that makes it easier to see which areas have been treated with weed killer.
