Killing weeds can be a tedious job for sure. I do as much digging and pulling of the weeds as I can, but some of them either just keep coming back or creep up in hard to reach areas…namely, between our patio pavers. We have kids and pets, so I really try to stay away from chemical filled weed killers. I have been making my own homemade weed killer for the past couple of years and it works great!
This homemade weed killer will help deter weeds in a safe way so you can feel good about not harming your kids or animals when using it, plus you can make it with some household ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. So, whose ready to kill some weeds?
You will need 2 cups of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of dish liquid (any kind will do). Add both ingredients to a clean spray bottle and shake well before each use. The vinegar kills the weeds, and they dish soap helps the vinegar stick to the weeds instead of just sliding off of them.
Just spray on weeds and watch them die within a few days. It’s best to spray the weeds when it is going to be dry outside for a couple of days so the mixture has time to penetrate the weeds and their roots. If it rains, just reapply after everything is dry.
