You can also pour boiling water straight on the plants. Just be careful not to get it on any good plants. (09/13/2008)

No, I disagree with the use of a cup of salt. That is permanently ruined soil. Salt is a chemical. (09/15/2008)

You should also use Lemon juice. It works very effectively. (01/14/2009)

Mix 1 gallon of vinegar with 1 oz. of liquid dish detergent. The soap works to break down the waxy surface on the leaves, allowing the vinegar to work more efficiently. It also helps the solution to stick to the leaves, giving the vinegar time to kill the weed.

Fill a spray bottle with the solution and spray weeds thoroughly. The solution will kill any plant it comes in contact with. Use care to avoid over-spray to neighboring plants. Small weeds will shrivel and die within 24 hours. Repeat application if regrowth occurs from the roots.

Pour the solution directly on the roots of large weeds that have extensive root systems. Plants like burdock may take a day or two to die off. Once the root withers and becomes soft, pull the root from the soil. Be careful, good luck. (03/26/2009)
