Step 1: A Shot of Vinegar
Ingredients and Supplies:
pump spray bottle
1. Fill the spray bottle with vinegar(or mix 3 parts vinegar to one part dishwashing liquid)
2. Spray in narrow stream
3.Rinse sprayer well after done
TIP: Don't get carried away with this method (repeated applications will acidify the soil)
Step 2: Weeds in Hot Water
1. Boil a kettle full of water
2. Pour slowly and carefully, wetting both the weeds and the soil surrounding them.
3. It is as SIMPLE as that
Tip: Leave the cold dead body of the weeds as a deterrent ( mulch) and it'll discourage germination of more weed seeds.
Step 3: Alcohol Attack
Ingredients and Supplies
1 quart water
1 (or more) tablespoons of rubbing alcoho
Measuring cup (1 Quart)
1Mix water and alcohol in the spray bottle (Use 1 tablespoon of alcohol for weed seedlings or thin-leaved weeds and 2 tablespoons or more for tougher weeds).
2. Spray weed leaves thoroughly but lightly (Avoid misting surrounding desirable plants).
Tip: It takes 5 tablespoons of alcohol in a quart of water to wipe out poison ivy for example, and experiment to see how many tablespoons it takes to kill your weeds.
