All Natural Weed Killer DIY

Did you know that glyphosate, used in Roundup, is one of the most toxic chemicals on the planet? There are plenty of all-natural ways to eliminate weeds. One of my favorite is this quick and easy weed killer DIY. It’s great to use on pavers, sidewalks, and gravel or stone areas where weeds pop through. Bonus – no harmful chemicals!
Time: 5 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy
The ingredients are all simple products you already have in your home:
  • Watering can
  • Vinegar
  • Dish soap (all-natural) or castile soap
  • Salt
  • Water
This is not an exact science – approximate measures are totally fine. You will want to pour in about 1/4 of the watering can with vinegar. Then add about 2 TBSP or one squirt of the dish soap, and about 1/4 cup of salt. Again – no stress… a little more or less of anything and it will still work. Then fill up the remainder of the watering can with your garden hose. You may need to rest for a minute here and there to let the bubbles subside.

Also, I use a dedicated watering can for this so I don’t have to worry about cleaning it out to water my flowers.
Back to Roundup. It’s actually the brand name for a poison called glyphosate. Glyphosate is one of the most toxic chemicals known to man and is a patented antibiotic that destroys the good bacteria in your gut. With so much of our produce being sprayed with Roundup, that is why it’s important to purchase organic and/or non-GMO produce, and also to not spray Roundup near your home.

That is why I love this weed killer. It’s so simple and inexpensive and it works. All-naturally!

    There are class action lawsuits against Roundup. I like to use a mixture if one cup bleach, one cup of salt to two gallons of water in a garden sprayer. Saturate the weeds and surrounding area. Weeds will start to wilt in about an hour. The object is to get down to the roots. Warning: this will kill everything.
