Chemical-Free Pesticide

7,260 Views
I have been very careful about the way I care for our vegetable garden. I try to avoid chemical-heavy products as it is, and using chemicals on our little garden just seems silly. Unfortunately, I am growing many leafy greens which little bugs just seem to love! Luckily this mixture for my Chemical-Free Pesticide has worked like a charm. In fact, you can see the little critters scurry off your plants as you spray them–very reassuring!
Time: 5 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients Needed:
1. White Distilled Vinegar
2. Dish Soap
3. Water
Directions:
1. Combine 1 part vinegar with two parts water into a spray bottle.
2. Add 2 teaspoons of dish soap and shake!
3. Spray generously over the leaves of your fruits, vegetables and other flower and vegetable garden plants.
4.Watch as insects run away!
