    I've never run in to these low overnight temps this late in spring. I'm starting my 2nd round and was wondering if anyone just adds RV antifreeze every night to their unused tank mix? I use it to winterize but am always to chicken to spray the winterized tank on my 1st couple of apps. Has anyone had any problems with the RV antifreeze damaging lawns?

    What's in the mix? If there is fertilizer it is unlikely to freeze due to the salt in the fertilizer.

    I find triplett to freeze at less than 32. Even at 25 its ok in the garage.
