I have a beautiful gravel driveway but the weeds are driving me crazy (no pun intended). Do you have a low cost solution?

I find that pouring boiling water on weeds helps to keep my gravel driveway quite clear. I attack them as they appear so they do not get a chance to take hold. Best of luck.
I have used the vinegar, but I used plain old kitchen vinegar. Just bring it to a boil to concentrate, let cool, put into a spray bottle. I also add some undiluted lemon juice with the vinegar.
All you have to do is dissolve ordinary table salt in some water and pour it onto each weed - make it quite strong though. I used to do this on our tennis court where the odd weed came up and it works like a charm. Happy weeding!
The best non toxic thing to use is Vinegar. Not the stuff you get @ the grocery store but @ the garden center. It is 20% vinegar. It works well and it is not picky about what it works on so be careful not to spray plants you want.
I use epsom salt to kill plants
Pour on plain old table salt - right from the package. cheap and effective.
I vote for vinegar too.
Buy a 4 litre jug of vinegar and remove @2 cups.
Add 1 cup salt shake and use to spray on weeds.
It will kill anything it touches, so be careful.
