Pour boiling water on them
Review the vinegar tips for killing weeds. Boiling water - while it may work, I'd be the one to trip over lint and have to go to the E.R.!!!
I'm not sure what you mean by non-toxic, Sheri. One of my garden mentors wrote the book (literally) on backyard ecology and she used Roundup. I think it would take a horticultural grade of vinegar for that to be effective and I wonder if anyone has tried to determine what the long-term effects of its use might be. You might want to invest in a weed torch. A patio is the perfect situation to use one.
No round up...I wont use a Monsanto product...I will however try the . vinegar!...Thanks Guys!
Boiling water works great for that type of job. Quicker than vinegar if you have whole rows to kill, though it does add some time to boil the water (also keep in mind that boiling water in the microwave uses less energy and time).
Boiling as we speak ...Thank You!
Would you use a Bayer product? They have something called DuraZone that does what you want.
vinegar. boiling water works as well.
Mix vinager, bleach and dish detergent with water. Spray and say good by. DON'T PUT ON ANYTHING YOU WANT. Spray the leaves on both sides.
2 jugs of cleaning vinegar (I buy at food basics right beside regular white vinegar), 1 cup Epsom salts, 2 tbl son blue dawn dish soap. Mix and spray on weeds. They will start to die in an hour. Very effective
