Neutralize Spray Tank Cleaner is a powerful and safe way to remove pesticide residues from your spray equipment. It effectively cleans and removes pesticide residues left by 2,4-D and sulfonylureas, residues that are hard to remove and extremely active at low rates. Neutralize has passed extensive corrosive testing. It is non corrosive to humans and is safe to use on all internal and external areas of spraying systems. Neutralize helps prevent damage to rubber plastic and other soft sprayer parts.
Fill spray tank to half capacity with water
1 - Engage agitation
2 - Slowly add 1 pound (dry) of Neutralize for every 100 gallons of water
3 - Agitate throughout tank for approximately 15 minutes
4 - Rinse internal areas of tank - Empty tank by the boom and other outlets to ensure all are clean
5 - Close valves and refill tank with clean water - Empty water through all outlets and boom to ensure no residue remains
This is one of the most cost-effective tank cleaners, and works quite well. The can specifies 1 pound per 100 gallons; I have written on the cover a more convenient conversion for small tanks, 3/4 tsp / gal. If using a 5-gallon bucket with the Chapin 6002 sprayer, fill the bucket with water to around the 1/2 gallon mark and use "a dash" of Neutralize. Then recirculate the solution (spray back into the bucket) for a few minutes or until the sprayer slides consistently smoothly. It can help to remove deposits by rotating the handle within the sprayer to different positions. You can also unscrew the nozzle to flush any debris lodged inside it. You should empty the bucket and flush with clean water at least once before storage, as the cleaner is alkaline.

Will neutralizer clean the 2-4-d chemical from my hands?
Although, Spray Tank Cleaner & Neutralizer is non corrosive to humans and is safe to use on all internal and external areas of spraying systems, it should not be used on humans as a means to clean and/or remove insecticide residue. Please refer to the product label of the insecticide being used to learn the recommended removal of insecticides off of people.
