I mixed up the "Keep the Deer Away" concentrate with "Kill all the
Weeds" concentrate. By the grace of Mother Nature I switched the mix
AFTER I had sprayed the Roses with correct sprayer. I was just getting
the sprayer ready for the next time. I noticed that it didn't seem to
smell as bad and thought Ut Ohh.
Anyone done the same?

No, probably because I spray the Repels-All from a manufacturer spray
bottle, and I don't use weed killer.
However, when using a single sprayer to apply multiple treatments,
perhaps you should make a marker you twist-tie to the handle as a
clear indicator of what is inside? A piece of vinyl mini blind slat
makes a good durable tag, and those plastic wrapped twist wires found
restraining childrens' toys into their packaging are useful for tieing
them to a handle or bottle neck, etc (I use similar for making row
markers with PVC plumbing for stakes). You could blast the marker
with coloured spray paint, or tape a piece of coloured electrical tape
to it. Red for "poison" or danger or somesuch, Green for some sort of
fertilizer, Orange for some pest treatment, etc.
When done, empty the sprayer into the original non-spray container (if
you haven't used it all up), and return the marker tag to the package
associated with that particular chemical, so it's there to be affixed
to your sprayer the next time you fill it. Of course, don't forget to
rinse the sprayer and flush the pump assembly.
Think of them as something like a "remove before flight" safety
streamer (as seen frequently on military aircraft when on the ground).
I have one on the keyring for one of my performance cars <g>
I don't spray to fertilize, I use granular. I re mixed in a hand
sprayer for the deer stuff. It will work for now. I don't think I can
get the weed killer out of the other sprayer to be able to use it
again for the deer stuff. Not worth the chance to me. As far as
labeling, they of course were, and one was out side and one was in the
garage. How old do you have to be to start getting Senior Moments?. I
am just so glad it wasn't worse.
Male or female, nouns are the first thing to go.
Use differently coloured *and* shaped sprayers for different purposes.
Kinda like the differently shaped and coloured jars the chemists had and
used for poisons.
In article < snipped-for-privacy@Pat-Kiewicz.news.eternal-
Sprayers aren't too expensive. There are quite a few sturdy enough
models kicking around.
Shape, size and colour means that if my nomenclature slips badly some
other sense has a chance to tell me I'm screwing up.
Of course, killing the soil means killing the ecology of the
environment. e.g. anphibians.
Killing the anphibians of course means more insects, which then require
more insecticide (a biocide) to control them, and that impacts everyone
who lives in, or eats from that poisoned environment. With fewer poison
purveyors like Boron Elgar, we would have a healthier world.

You're not one of Brooklyn/Shelly's new avatars are you?
Again, congratulations on reaching the bottom of the barrel first.
