I think vinegar is a better choice, it doesn't harm the groundwater like bleach does. Vinegar is a little slower to work. (11/06/2009)

Bleach kills everything, so of course, it can be used. Ground water will dilute it hour by hour, so apply more if you want better weed killing results. Vinegar on the other hand also gets dilute by ground water and of course, it depends on what type and strength of vinegar you use, e.g. white, malt, wine or cider vinegar? No one on here seems to have clue as to which one they would recommend? Could vinegar also act as a fertilizer perhaps on the very weeds you are trying to kill?

Bleach doesn't harm the ground water. It breaks down within 12 hours an becomes insert. That's why restaurants using it to sanitize dishes have to change it every 2 hours. You can safely plant on top of a bleach treated area as soon as the next day.
