This must be the time of year for afternoon showers here on the west coast of Florida. With the rain comes lots of growth which is just great for the few things I’ve planted. However, those pesky little weeds popping up in between the pavers on my driveway and sidewalks are growing like crazy as well.
S.O.S. ~ Natural weed killer needed! We are extra careful about using any type of chemical that could end up in the water. I have books with natural recipes for this but they are still packed in the garage. I thought I’d check out Pinterest and see if I could find a recipe for a green weed killer. There were loads of recipes using vinegar, salt and dish soap. I mixed up a batch, sprayed it on a test area and by that afternoon those pesky little weeds were brown and dying! I couldn’t find the original pin or website I saw this on..arrgh. There were lots of pins with the same 3 ingredients and they only varied slightly. Below is from memory.
1 Gallon white vinegar
1/2 cup salt
1/8 cup liquid dish soap
Mix and saturate the weeds. Using it in the morning on a hot sunny day seems to speed the process along.
This is great stuff, super easy, super easy on the budget and natural. Love it 🙂
