Makes sense to me, and you say that it works... thanks for the feedback...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...

I tested 5 products for effectiveness when dandelions were sprayed at low temperatures, (30 to 55). So far, after 4 days, starting when the soil temp was 33, Speedzone looks a little more effective; four other products...variable, but not as effective. More results later.

They will most likely not be dead before winter but you will no see them next spring and that is what counts.

Good point Mike. We recently had to drain our T's & put in RV anti-freeze. But we will put liquid BWC back in tomorrow. (10 day forecast calls for highs in the 40's/50's)
