Homemade Weed Killer

Weed Killer Ingredients

  • 1 gallon of white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • Liquid dish soap (any brand)
  • Empty spray bottle.

Homemade Weed Killer

Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap (makes it stick to the leaves). 

Mix well, spray on weeds in the morning, rejoice in their death that evening.

This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.

Natural Weed Killer

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 to Kill Weeds

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!
