How to Use Tide Detergent on My Lawn


Proper lawn care keeps your home looking great year-round. Use common household items, such as Tide detergent, in conjunction with store-bought chemicals to improve your lawn and control pests. Tide breaks down hard topsoil and improves the lawn's ability to accept both water and fertilizer.

Step 1

Fill a hose-end sprayer with water. Add 1 tsp. Tide detergent. The Tide detergent helps the soil accept water more efficiently, increasing the amount of moisture your plants receive.

Step 2

Apply fertilizer. Cover all areas, especially those that are dried and brown.

Step 3

Water your lawn as needed using the Tide mixture.
