let's say for fun that none of us actually know the purpose
of a surfactant is to cause the active ingredient of the
herbicide to stick longer on the surface of the foliage of
the undesirable plant. so, we'll look the word up in the
surfactant :a surface-active substance (as a detergent)
detergent :that cleanses : cleansing

add the soap last. be sure an add the soap last.
about six or eight drops is sufficient.
make sure your return mix line is submerged just under
the surface of the water in the tank. doing this will

You will want to use a product such as Weed-B-Gon to remove clover. This
will kill off the clover, but you should use a surfactant
(sticker-spreader) for best results.
Clover is a symptom of a bigger problem. Clover does very well in poor,
hard soil. Clover obtains it's nitrogen from the air... not the soil. It's
telling you that your soil lacks nitrogen.
A plan of attack should include correcting the soil issues or the clover
will be back. Fertilizing 2 or 3 times a season combined with a higher
mowing hight(2.5-3 inches) will do wonders for your lawn.
