Introduction: Biodegradable and Safer Alternative for Commercial Herbicide

With this Instructable we will learn how to make a safer and cheaper alternative to commercial herbicide. The ingredients are very easy to obtain at any supermarket or grocery store. Most of us have them already available at home. 

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:
  • 1 gallon (3.78 liters) of white vinegar
  • 12 ounces (341.1 grams) approximately of salt for every gallon of vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon, more or less, of dishwashing detergent (biodegradable detergent preferably) will work as a surfactant
Mix and shake the ingredients on a safe plastic container.

Step 2: How to Use the Biodegradable Herbicide

For maximum effect you should spray the solution on a very hot and sunny day over the undesirable plants using a small trigger sprayer or a pump sprayer. Cover the whole plant and roots and watch the weeds go.
