  • Hi Barbara, my go to is vinegar in a spray bottle. I use it on a pebbled path we have. This article may have better ideas though.

    Hi Barbara, I use vinegar with dawn ultra added to it with water in one of the 1 gallon sprayers. It works best on a hot sunny day.

    I use one cup of vinegar, one cup of salt to two gallons water in a garden sprayer. Saturate the weeds till dripping. Do not use on lawn or in garden. Will kill everything. Boiling water on weeds in lawn and garden.

    Barbara.....For a spray bottle I use 2 cups vinegar, 1/4 cup salt and little Dawn...shake well and spray, of course, you can double, triple or whatever you need. Good luck!

  • 2 gallon pump sprayer filled with white vinegar and the sun! I get 2 gallons for $3.49. Be generous and douse the area heavily. May take multiple applications if it is not sunny. Repeat after each rain event.

    in 2 gallon sprayer mix 2 gallons straight vinegar with 2 cups of table salt mix well til dissolved spray grass til soaked really soaked in full hot direct sun no rain for the next 3 days. spray agin as soon as you see any new growth coming up. if you want it to work faster use 2 gallons of the 20 or 30 % industrial strength vinegar, much more money but will kill faster, larger area however it is potent will burn skin on contact.(reg vinegar you buy at store is 5%) vinegars explained
