How can I clean the weeds out of my gravel driveway without chemicals?

I have multiple cats in my yard and I don't like to use anything that might harm them, but the weeds are taking over my gravel driveway. Other than pulling them up by hand, is there an alternative way to clean it up?

    Do you want to rid of your driveway of weeds? Start by pouring hot water on the weeds, and wait until they die, 2 days. Next, hose down the weeds good, soak them. Wait 24 hrs and now get as close to the ground as possible, and grab the weed, the root will come with it. No more weeds in this area. Good Luck!

    Use vinegar in a sprayer

    Non toxic weed killer: 1 gallon white vinegar, 2 cups Epsom salts, 1/3 cup Dawn dish soap (blue kind). Mix and spray on weeds in a.m. Be aware it kills all living plants. We weed eat the weeds first to make sure the roots really get soaked. Apply weed killer after dew is evaporated.

      This is for sure a good solution! Just be aware that vinegar will kill other plants, so don't spray the things you don't want to kill :)
