Natural Weed Killer

I use a natural weed killer on my brick walkway. It effectively prevents weeds from growing between the bricks. This safe weed killer is cheap and easy to make at home. What's not to like?

The recipe for natural weed killer is simple. Combine 1 gallon of white vinegar with 1 cup of salt and a tablespoon of liquid dish soap. The soap is a wetting agent that helps the vinegar and salt mix. Stir it all up and pour or spray on the weeds.

Use this and you won't have weeds for 3 to 6 months. Don't get this natural weed killer on any plants you want to keep because it's actually a soil sterilizer. It isn't selective and could harm shrubs.

I've also seen another recipe for a natural weed killer. This one mixes one gallon of 10% vinegar with an ounce of orange oil and a teaspoon of liquid soap. Spray or pour it on the weeds on a hot an sunny day. I haven't tried this one but it sounds good.
