Natural Weed Control That Works

Natural Weed Control

I don't usually post these things unless I have tried them, And this works. I was amazed how fast I saw results too.

Mix:

1 Gallon white vinegar

2 cups multi purpose epsom salt

1/4 cup regular blue dawn dish soap

Put into gallon sprayer, if you don't have a sprayer, You can use anything that will spray out liquid, Saturate weeds.

I used this in the morning around 10 am went back in a couple hours and the weeds were wilting and turning color, a few hours later, bye bye weeds. Use this every couple weeks to control weeds, all safer for the environment, and allot safer to have around the house with children and pets.

    Can this be used in the grass? I have St. Augustine that is being taken over by weeds due to drought, Want to kill the weeds but not the lawn.
    • Carol J Seminole, FL
      Francine P it will kill your St. Augustine grass also. You can try giving the grass just straight Epsom Salts and hand watering 2 times a day for a few weeks. This will help perk up your grass. But if you add the vinegar and dawn it will kill your grass.
