With all the time and expense that is involved in spraying, why would you scrimp on not using the correct surfactant? The surf is one of the critical parts of the mix especially when brush is involved.

Has anyone heard of using dish soap as a surfactant?
Yes and you can actually be fined for it here in Texas, because it’s off label use. The label is the law here.
Wow, that is harsh. But how would they catch you?

We actually have to keep a log on the amount and the chemicals.
They do random inspections as well going to your local suppliers and pulling a license number. I only know of one fellow the guy from the TCEQ showed up at his place.

I have a friend that was randomly audited on his corn (they insert a color gene each year to identify which year it was). They started raising Caine and wanted to know where the corn was that should have planted 50 acres (it was wet ground and he had not planted it yet).

I don't keep the foaming down very well but the only time I notice it is when I am refilling the tank
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

And always use a surfactant per the label recommendations.

All the time. I like the fresh scent.
