Go and ask for "granulated Round-Up".
This is Quick-Pro. It is formulated with a small percentage of diquat for quicker visible results. In my area, it is more expensive than regular glyphosate formulas due to the millions spent on research to come up with just the right blend. At least according to the Monsanto company rep I talked with.

The dawn method is an excellent idea for products such as 2,4-D etc but all glyphosate products I am aware of already have a surfactant added in. If you want to use it fine, it won't hurt. FWIW- the surfactant helps break through the outer leaf surface, especially on plants such as cat-briars, but does nothing to help it stay on longer. You need an oil product, such as crop oil to do that.

Should I leave the dead grass or remove it and put grass seed.

I would follow a good irrigation and feeding regimen for a few weeks. Some herbicides will cause yellowing if applied too strongly as you did, or on certain semi-tolerant material. For example, Image is labeled for nutsedge control in lawns, but it will also cause a temporary yellowing on some grasses. It's possible that the actual grass is still alive but just burned on top a little. Hopefully.

I will just leave it and see what happens after a few weeks.
