- 3 cups distilled white vinegar
- 3/4 cup regular table salt
- 2 tsp blue dawn dish soap (works best, but can use others)
- 3 tsp liquid arthritis rub (seriously!!! Make to sure to read why here )
In a spray bottle, add the salt, dish soap, vinegar and capsicum type rub (found in grocery stores for only a few dollars, see picture below). Shake it up until well mixed. Apply directly to the leaves of the weed. It starts working almost immediately, by 24 hours the weed is almost completely gone. It will continue to die and wither away! **This is not recommended on weeds in grass, it can harm grass. Always make sure to spray the leaves of the weed directly, it should never actually touch soil. Use with caution around flower beds, if you get water that washes downhill, try not to spray weeds uphill from flowers in case it rolls down. Also, this is a very diluted saline solution, it doesn't harm animals or leaves lasting effects on soil (it shouldn't need to be sprayed on soil).
