I always had empty spray bottles, like colognes and perfumes. I don't throw them away that easily, I will reuse them instead. I put alcohol in those spray bottles and put them in every part of the house. In case of emergency, I can just grab my alcohol anytime, anywhere. One more thing, using spray bottles won't waste your alcohol.
To stay cool outdoors in hot weather, I use clean spray bottles bought from the warehouse store. Fill with cool clean water and use the nozzle set to mist. Spray air above you or yourself or for others. The bottles I have hold a quart. Take extra water, if needed.
It was reasonable and just the right size, so I made my mix and tried it out on some weeds. It works good! But I was about to toss the vinegar bottle in recycling when it hit me that maybe the nozzle would fit on it and it did!
Now I get I had to buy the bottle first before I could figure this out. But if you have other nozzles and other bottles, you can do this too. So as a bonus, I am including the recipe and and photos of how it did.
In your bottle of choice, layer the bottom with 1/4 inch of salt. Fill it with the full bottle of vinegar and top it off with 8-10 drops of dish washing liquid. I used Dawn but I think any will do.
Shake well and spray on the leaves of the weeds.
