Adding Dye to Weed-B-Gone Max

I'd like to add some benign color (like food coloring) to Weed-B-Gone, so I know which dandelions I sprayed. Has anyone done this? If so, what's a good choice? I'd love to turn the ones I've sprayed to a red color...

RE: Adding Dye to Weed-B-Gone Max

I have am using Weed-Be-Gone this year (in the past I used bayer with good results, but HD was out of it last week). It seems to be a dark brown color? Would dye work?

What I do is spot spay only once a week, that way, if is not dead in a week, I must have not sprayed it before. Or, I systematicly spray my whole yard. That way, if I I see any weeds after three days, they must be new weeds and need eradication.

I'd look in the food coloring section at your favorite grocery could get several colors and experiment
