add the juice of a lemon to kick up the acid content- it makes a great addition to that recipe, also, you will find it makes it smell a lot nicer!
Thanks. I'm going to try it too.
I think I will try this also. There are some spots I would like to take of. We will see what happens. Thanks for the heads up on this.
Hello from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
Just remember it will kill ANYTHING green plus all the things you want to keep like flowers, so be careful.
if u sprinkle salt be careful around concrete as salt can break down the surface causing it to crumble
this recipe works on ant hills as well - mind u we do not get red ants or anything evil like that just normal average ants that destroy
Vinegar may be the best ecologically... but it's not the cheapest.
A few ounces of 41% systemic weed killer (that costs under $100) makes 100 gallons of spray. I use 'Eraser' now that Roundup's patent has expired.
Well, I just made up the spray, and sprayed near the garage door a little while ago. That area has been troublesome in that there is some grassy spots that I always try and trim down, and they are back in no time it seems. The bugs didn't seem to like it either--LOL.
Too windy to spray here today. I have been weeding in the flower beds. Can't use spray along the fenceline under the fence as it might blow into my plants. So have to handweed it all and use a trowel and it loosens the dandelions and the tons of creeping charlie and another weed that is so overtaking out there. It was shown in Garden Gate magazine one time so I knew that was what I had.
One of these days I will buy more salt and some vinegar and mix this up and try it. I have a tub of weeds from today and a tub I found in my lawncart in the shed of cut off ornamental grass. I use a lot of pine bark nuggets for mulch and it does help block out the weeds. I laid newspaper layers under the mulch I put down last Fall. That helps, too.
Let every day be a good day!
When I looked under the kitchen sink, I realized that I had a gallon of vinegar(have no idea how long I have had it), checked the salt shaker to make sure it was full, and I had the dish soap. I also had an empty spray bottle, so I was in business. I should go out and see if anything has happened yet.
have killed weeds (usually in sidewalk cracks) with just straight vinegar. Does not take much and the weeds die. Use an empty soap squirt top bottle.
I and a frien have been useing it for some time. And it is fast acting . And real cheap. LOL
