Hi,

 

Thanks for the advice.  I did do a search and found this useful page;

 

Cleaning Field Sprayers to Avoid Crop Injury

http://extension.missouri.edu/explore/agguides/crops/g04852.htm

 

Scrolling to the bottom of the article it appears that cleaning with water
and ammonia, at various ratios, for various chemicals is most common.

 

I'll dump the dish soap and try ammonia.

 

Thanks again,

Tom
