I just used this 3 days ago and my weeds are dead. Works faster then round-up !

The recipe is ...
One gallon white vinegar.
One cup of salt. And,
2 TBS blue Dawn.
Mix well and spray on.
Notice: it does kill everything, so don't spray around flowers etc.

Good to know, I will try that. I have used about 100.00 of Round Up.
I have about one acre to weed. Have paid guys to weed and they still come back. Have to do it all over again. I am a 73 yo widow and have limited income. Thanks so much

I am going to try this formula I am 78 and really do not have anyone to help me. I also am a widow. In my back yord my dog has her potty area and I need to get rid of weeds there. I understand this is animal safe.

Just curious, i read another persons blog with this same recipe. They said to boil the vinegar and salt until dissolved.


Let it cool and put the the dawn in your sprayer and add your salt/vinegar slowly to not make many suds. is this what you did?

The Romans salted Carthage for a reason. Just white vinegar works well too

As I live in the UK, what is blue dawn? Is this mixture safe around Hedgehogs?

I think Fairy dish detergent is similar to Dawn.

I've heard that if you're adding salt to the ground that it will prevent anything regrowing in that area for up to 4-5 years. I've heard vinegar works fine without the salt. Although the mixture will work well on blackberry bushes
