Got weeds? Use vinegar! Vinegar is a staple in many homes, but did you know that this seemingly benign liquid can be used to kill weeds? The acetic acid in vinegar takes out the water of the weeds, causing them to dry up and die.
Vinegar alone is sufficient to eliminate weeds; however, it works best when used in conjunction with soap and salt. Combine some Dawn dish soap, either plain salt or Epsom salts, and vinegar in a large container with a wooden spoon. You’ll need to reapply the solution for stubborn, older weeds, just like you would with chemical weed killers.
Be careful what you put this mixture on, it won’t discriminate between weeds and the things you want to grow!
