Homemade Weed Killer #DIY #Frugal #EarthDay


Weed killer is expensive and full of harsh chemicals.  If you have kids or pets, you may want to look for a safer alternative!  Not only is homemade weed killer frugal, but it also works great. It only takes a few minutes to make and you  probably have everything you need  already in your cupboards!

Here is what you will need:
  • 1 gallon of white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon Liquid dish soap (any brand)
  • Empty spray bottle
The vinegar and salt both work together to  draw moisture out of the plants to kill the weed. The liquid dish soap makes the mixture stick to the weed.  This weed killer recipe will kill or damage any plant it touches. Only use it in areas like driveways, sidewalks, and large open mulch or gravel areas. 

This weed killer works best when hot and sunny! It may take a couple applications to fully rid your area of the weeds.
