Use Vinegar to Kill Weeds in Sidewalk Cracks

This is sort of a garden tip. When doing your yard, mowing, weeding, etc. you find you have grass/weeds growing in the sidewalk. It is such a pain to crawl along or bend over pulling them up with TOXIC chemicals. Fill a sprayer with vinegar and go at it.

A couple days after spraying, they will be dead! Just sweep them away! I find this works if I am spot spraying area of weeds in the yard. I do not like chemicals and straight vinegar helps with so many yard spots. Rinse your bottle out after use.

I have also sprayed 1/2 strength vinegar on "stinky squid" a mushroom type growth that smells horrible. It has worked well.

As someone mentioned previously, salt also works, but use it ONLY on areas where you don't want anything else to grow; it will spot up your lawn for a long time, so use with caution. Much better than toxic chemicals, though! Thanks for the tip.
