DIY Weed Killers- TESTED!
Getting rid of pesky and persistent weeds is easier than you may think. Skip the chemical weed killers... your yard will thank you!
We all struggle to keep our paths, patios, and flower beds free from weeds. They're relentless, but who wants to constantly spray harmful chemicals? I tested two DIY weed killers and here's how they measured up!
I tested two areas in our garden paths, and as you can see, the weeds are vibrant and green. The two DIY weed killers I opted to use were a vinegar/soap/epsom salt mix and boiling water. I applied the weed killer/boiling water to two separate areas and I was shocked at the results.
The area above is where I used the boiling water. Within two days the weeds were completely dead. I was surprised that simply boiling water would be so effective.
The vinegar/salt/soap mix also did an excellent job of killing weeds within just two days. Near the garden, I will probably opt to use the boiling water since I'm unsure how the salt and vinegar may affect the soil so close to my growing veggies.
