    I recall a thread that discussed an additive that masks chemical smells. I did a search with no results. Does anyone know of such a thing? Thanks!

    I just ordered a gallon today based on recommendations by Runner. I'm anxious to give it a try this spring. My wife hates the smell of 3-way.

    Try "Hawkeye" from JDL, masking agent as well as spreader

    I have used a spreader/sticker that Lesco/JDL sells called Hawkeye. It has the MINT sent to it as well, and a little of it goes a long way. It's pricey, but if you are using a ULV sprayer it's not too bad.

    I'll look at the link above in a sec. I know the chemicals stink, and it gives the industry a bad rap when they do. Personally I like the scent of 3-way on a spring evening, lol. I've had a couple "scared of anything chemical" type customers that say just the smell of a chemical like 3-way makes them ill. I'm sure even if it smelled like a mentos factory they would still see it coming out of a sprayer and their BRAIN would make them think that they needed to feel sick...

    Hokie, you posted while I was rambling... Glad someone else knows about the product.

    Klok (pronounced "cloak") is the one I used. Don't know if it is still available or not, but as been mentioned, there are others on the market.

    Its easy--switch to Trimec 1000--its a low odor product. Water clear--purified.
    THEN: tell us how you like it. If you ask your customers--can they smell it after treatment?

    I used to use Lesco Eliminate. Almost no odor.
    Other companies make low-odor herbicides.
