Amazing Weed Killer Spray Recipe and Tips

Here is a homemade recipe for an amazing weed killer spray that you can use to get rid of weeds without poisons. It is for use along walk ways and cracks in driveways or even along a chain link fence if you don’t wish to use a weed trimmer. This will kill all plants though so only use it where you want everything to die. It doesn’t work permanently but it kills them for a while and it is easy to make and apply.

Amazing Weed Killer Spray Recipe and Tips


1/2 gallon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 c table salt
1/2 tsp Dawn liquid dish soap
Mix and pour into a spray bottle

Spray weeds thoroughly.

It worked better than Round Up & killed the weeds on first application.  The Dawn dish soap strips the weed of its protective oils so the vinegar can work with deadly force. Safe to use in a yard that is used by pets.
Another option is to pour a pot of boiling hot water on weeds in gravel, driveways and sidewalks.
Basically anywhere you’re not worried about killing surrounding grass and plants. If the weed you are trying to kill is moss, you can sprinkle baking soda all over it and then wait a few days. The soda will kill it off until next spring.

Have a wonderful day taming those weeds.
