OP, I used an Image product until it ran out and saw results it was working within hours. Had to use something else I had then, which didn't look like it was working for days. Called the company up and they said it could take up to 28 days for their product to show signs its working. It worked, but took a lot longer than the Image product, which I will use again.

As another person mentioned, a sponge brush works well, as I use one sometimes since I can't spray many areas of my yard due to edibles and plants.

Any product with glyphosate will kill it (round up). You can buy generic much cheaper, example home depot brand. Glyphosate will kill all the plant's its not species specific , so be careful when applying. However it will not kill future seeds from sprouting. So its a contact solution and new weeds will appear in the future.
Glyphosate applied at 1-1/2 to 3 oz per gal of water will take out most weeds within 3 to 7 days after application. Start with a lower dose, repeat if needed after 10 days.

If its a small patch boil a big pot of water and pour it on it. Dead plant the next day.

You know, you could be correct!! This stuff has taken over my front yard but the Turflon Ester Weed Killer is killing it. After a few days it is turning yellow and I am raking up the dead stuff with a thatching rake that I just purchase. Let's see if I can be rid of this nasty invasive clover type weed.

The Turflon Ester might be expensive however ite Extremely potent, 1/8 of an ounce per gallon, that's a lot of killing power for a little!

As others have said, certain products kill certain weeds better than others so basically I will just have several different weed killers in my arsenal!
