Killer

You can make a homemade weed killer using white vinegar, salt and

dishwashing liquid. Most people call this a weed killer, but it is

actually a vegetation killer. It will kill anything it comes in

contact with and will change the composition of your soil. If you

spray it on your lawn, it will kill the entire lawn and you will

not be able to plant new grass for some time. The same is true in

your garden. You will not be able to plant where you spray it for

several months. So before you do it, think twice. Mix a gallon of

white vinegar with a cup of table salt and 1 tablespoon of

dishwashing liquid. The dishwashing liquid makes the solution stick

to the plant leaves. Make sure you shake the solution to dissolve

the salt

Keep in mind that many plants have already dropped their seeds,

so the weeds are going to come back. The best solution to eradicate

weeds is spend the time to pull them out when they first appear for

several years and use the solution to spot kill weeds in a garden

but not a lawn.

If weeds appear in the cracks of your sidewalk, the easiest and

least expensive method to remove them is to simply pour boiling

water on them. This method will kill any weed without using

chemicals or changing your soil. This spot treatment can be

difficult in tight areas of gardens, but is still very feasible

with careful application.
