Here are a couple of the recipes for homemade weed killer that I've heard of:
•Vinegar, from 1 tablespoon per gallon to full strength;
•Salt, from adding none to adding 1 pound per gallon;
•Soap, from none to 20% of the mixture;
•Water, from adding none to having the mix be 99% water; and using cool, lukewarm, warm or hot water;
•Other additions: gin, bourbon, citrus oil.
However, vinegar, salt, soap, oils and alcohol might kill other vegetation as well. Your best bet is probably to go to Lowes, Home Depot or a garden center and purchase an organic weed killer.
Picking the weeds before they can set seed cuts back on their population. Mow your lawn often to cut the weeds before they bloom. I collect my lawn clippings for this reason.
