Will D-Tox Flowable Charcoal help remove the smell of Malathion?

I tipped over a 1 quart bottle of Malathion 50 in my flowerbed about a month ago and the smell is still pretty bad.

Answer:

Yes, D-Tox Flowable Charcoal should help to absorb Malathion and, therefore, eliminate the odor. Per the product label, Flowable Charcoal will decontaminate spills of organic herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, gasoline, motor oil, or hydraulic fluid.

As quickly as possible after the spill, apply D•TOX Flowable Charcoal at a rate of 1-2 gal/150 sq ft. Use the higher rate for more concentrated spills. Apply the product undiluted or diluted up to 1 gallon in 3 gallons water, or as required for proper spraying. Any type of spray equipment may be used. For spot treatment of small spills, apply undiluted product directly from the container or from a common sprinkler can.
