Get Rid of Moss - With Dishsoap

Use household dishsoap as an effective moss killer


Moss is not always considered a weed, but don't tell that to those who have tried to deal with it. Here's a 'green' recipe for an effective moss killer. It's safer than chemical pesticides and only a fraction of the cost. It sounds odd but it works and is used by turf professionals everywhere.

  • 4 ounces Ultra Dawn liquid dish soap
  • 1 gallon water

Gently mix contents in a 1-2 gallon hand sprayer. Holding the spray nozzle a couple of inches from the target, drench moss with solution. Moss will turn orange/brown in 24 hrs and eventually dry up while the surrounding grass takes over.
