Natural Weed Killer

Many of my Mimi's Greenhouse customers have asked about a safe way to kill weeds. With that in mind, I went on a search for a natural way to rid the garden of weeds. Here is the best recipe I found. I actually used it yesterday and here is a picture of a Dandelion I sprayed. This is not even 24 hours later. Here is the recipe: note: Only add the salt if you DO NOT plan to replant in that area. 

1 Gallon White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon liquid detergent or vegetable oil, (I used detergent)
1 cup of salt
Put all ingredients into a sprayer - I like my 2-gallon pump sprayer.
Soak the weeds, preferably on a hot sunny day.
It could take a couple of days for them all to die.

BY THE WAY: Roundup weed killer is killing us! Read my Roundup Rant here:
