If you’re battling weeds in the garden like I am, I wanted to share an alternative to Round Up for getting rid of those pesky growths.
Disclaimer: Somewhere along the line, I turned into this guy. Remember the guy from My Big Fat Greek Wedding who uses Windex for everything? Well, that’s me, except my answer to all of my problems is vinegar and Dawn soap. If you need proof of this, see this post and this one and er, this one. There’s more, but you get it I’m sure…
I knew there had to be a way to kill weeds other than spraying dangerous & expensive chemicals on them, and after doing just a small amount of
pinning research, I found a good solution.
Mix in a spray bottle:
4 cups white vinegar
1/4 cup salt
2 teaspoons dish detergent
Spray it on the root area of the plants you want to disappear. Take care that you don’t spray it on the plants that you want to keep. It WILL kill grass too, so be careful if you’re spraying near your lawn. This mixture works best on a hot day. Spray it early and let the sun cook it all day long.
Here is a before and after shot of what it did in my yard. The before pic was from yesterday and the after was from this morning.
