Vinegar weed killer

Ok, there are many homemade recipes that just don't work. However, this vinegar weed killer really works and on a sunny day it works fast. Here it is:

Vinegar weed killer

In a 32 oz. spray bottle put 1/4 cup salt, 1/4 cup dish soap and fill the rest of the way with white vinegar. Spray on plants to be killed.

That is it. It is so easy, cheaper and healthier than the chemical alternative. However, there are some cautions:

This will change the pH of your soil.

This will kill all plants, so be careful of overspray.

It works best in the sun.

Some weeds are stubborn and might need a second application.

That is it. I keep a bottle fixed all the time through the growing season so that I have it handy. This really does work well and I don't have to worry about poisoning any of my animals. Blessings, Kat
