Baby Shampoo aerating question

soup006(7)April 14, 2012

I have decided to try the baby shampoo method with my ortho hose end sprayer. I have read one post saying to add water to the ortho bottle after adding the 3oz/1000sqft of shampoo and another not mentioning adding water to the container. I did the backyard yesterday without adding water to the container of shampoo. Is this still ok? I just sprayed until it was all gone so I know it was applied.

Adding water to the bottle only make the shampoo thinner so it flows easier. If you had no problem getting the shampoo to flow through the sprayer, then all is well.

I think my lawn suffers from hard soil too. I dormant-seeded last fall. Will this shampoo application have any negative effect on the new grass seed, which has not germinated yet? Thanks!

I would not think so. And I have not read anything from others on that topic. If you are worried about it, wait until after you are mowing.
