Controlling Dandelions in the lawn?

What chemical(s) does everyone use to control dandelions in your lawn?
I've used Premium 3-way and Ally before as well as a few cocktails mixed up from leftover chemical.

What does everyone use? What kind of mixes have you tried that worked?
TIA

Curtail M seems to work.

A good shot of Ally, and 2-4D Ester seems to keep them away for a few years. Just don't get too close to the flowers.

Never tried it on grass but Spectrum does a good job in the cereals.

Whatever is in the chem shed that has long lost its label. After we test it on the grass if it don't kill the grass it gets sprayed on the grass. Down to about a half dozen mystery jugs.

Unfortunately, here in MB it is now illegal to control dandelions on lawns.

A big "thank you" to our communist government for that one!

I really hope that the people of Winnipeg remember all this when it comes to election time.
