Homemade Weedkiller

Yesterday, I made my own homemade weedkiller.  It was so simple, and it works.  I have the pictures to prove it.

Believe it or not, this is all you need.

Now for the recipe and then I'll show you what I did with it.

1 gallon of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of table salt
1 teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid. I didn't have any so I used some earth friendly/all-natural soap I use.

Just mix and pour into a spray.  That's it!  No cooking, muss, or fuss.

Now for my project.
  We are going to lay patio stones under the deck at the walk-out slider. The weeds are out of control there. You can see how the rainwater splashes on the slider glass and makes a complete and ugly mess.
We're not quite ready to do the patio yet but we bought a few of the blocks so we no longer have to walk in the mud. We sprayed the weeds quite heavily and 24 hours later they looked like this.

I'd say that is quite a success story. This new product is going to be my go-to weedkiller from now on. I hope you have the same luck as I did!

Love this. Hate using chemicals. I'll have to write this down to keep and use.
