Fight the Weeds with Vinegar

Most people do not know the power of vinegar to kill weeds.  Vinegar will eliminate weeds without  the potential hazards of  powerful chemicals.  Just spray the vinegar on the leaves of the weeds until they are wet and in a matter of days, the weeds will be dead.

There are two things you should know about using vinegar to kill weeds: 

  • Vinegar is activated by sunlight.  So, check your weather report and try to pick a day when it will be sunny and not raining. 
  • Vinegar does not discriminate!  It will kill ALL plants that it is sprayed on.  So, only spray it on the weeds you want to kill. Do not get it on your flowers, tomato plants, etc. 

Besides being safe and effective, vinegar is inexpensive.  All types of vinegar will work and white vinegar is usually the least expensive.   

FYI: Vinegar is great to use to kill the weeds that grow in sidewalk cracks.
