My Dad told me about using vinegar as weed killer. He said it worked wonders. It probably did out in the blistering heat of New Mexico. When I used it here, it was somewhat effective but not what I had hoped.
Then last week my friend Sharon told me about another ingredient to add that makes the mixture work better.
So here is the recipe:
- Get Spray Bottle (Hmmm…I wonder if this would work in a Super Soaker?)
- Add 1 T of Joy or Dawn or Palmolive (or any other brand)
- Fill rest of bottle with Vinegar. (I used white)
Then go out and spray on weeds during a sunny day with very little breeze. The dish washing detergent makes the vinegar stick to the weeds.
I did sprayed the weeds out front this afternoon, will update this post in the next day or two with my results. Hopefully it works well as it is a lot less expensive than Roundup and not as toxic.
Have a swingin’ good time today whatever you do
