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.

Thanks for giving us such a good tip on killing unwanted weeds & etc.

Salt will do the same,just sprinkle it on grass,weeds & anything you don't want.

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.

Here's what I do...during winter months, every time I go to the store, I buy the small pourable Mortons salt containers (about .50 cents each), then when spring comes I have TONS of them saved up. Then what I do is, I pour 1 whole container into a gallon of hot water, let dissolve, then dump it on weeds and driveway cracks. I also put it around my mailbox ( I don't have a weedeater) and around small stumps and places hard to mow around. TIP: the morton's salt has 2 types : 1 WITH iodine in it, and 1 WITHOUT. The salt without iodine is about 10 cents cheper (at walmart, anyway, 40 cents a container vs 50 cents a container). Hope this helps. I have tried the vinegar, epsom salt, dawn, bleach, round up, etc...nothing works better for me than good ole strong ass saltwater!
