With the new pesticide bans, I am having trouble finding something to control the weeds in my lawn. Of particular note are the dandylions. There are way too many to hand dig (80-90% of lawn). I've overseeded two areas, but they look the same as they did before. One area I had hand cleared. Since only kill-all products are available, what options do I have to get the dandys under control?

There are only two options you either pick them out by hand or you can spray them with a mixture of white vinegar, salt and a couple dashes of dish soap. Note that the vinegar/salt/dishsoap (not dishwasher soap) will kill anything else that is sprayed as well ie grass flowers.
