Just because I’m an herbalist, doesn’t mean I don’t struggle with weeds. I do. Weeds are simply plants growing in areas you don’t them to grow in, right? Which is why I have an entire bed designated just for dandelions!
Be careful with this recipe because wherever you spray it, you actually do a ground kill. Nothing will grow there, again. But this is much safer than using other chemical ground kill sprays because this is non toxic.
Vinegar: Pour 1 gallon of white vinegar into a bucket. Just regular vinegar will do the trick. It may take 2 or 3 days for the vinegar to work, but it will work on it’s own.
Salt: You can use table salt, rock salt, whatever kind of salt you have on hand. Stir in 1 cup of salt and stir with a stick or long handled utensil.
Dishwashing Soap: Stir in a Tablespoon of liquid dishwashing soap like Dawn. (Bugs will also hate this ingredient.) The soap will keep the vinegar and salt solution effectively on the plants, helping it adhere to them longer. (I personally love Mrs. Meyers Lemon Verbena.)
Funnel all three ingredients into your sprayer, and wala! You have a non-toxic weed killer, ground killer. You can keep your leftover spray indefinitely. Just label it and keep it out of reach of littles and animals.
Grab some seeds here and sprinkle them among your garden beds and flower beds. Doing all that killing must make you want to grow things, right?
