    Hi Shirley: I have just done this a couple of weeks ago, and it works great!

    1 gallon of white vinegar

    2 cups of Epsom salt

    1/4 cup liquid dish washing soap

    Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is dissolved, mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy.

    Put in a sprayer and spray the weeds liberally in the morning after the dew has gone. Then, by evening the weeds should be dead or on their way out. Don't spray anything you want to keep or it will die too. Also, it's good for making an edging as it kills only what it touches. If you have something like a piece of cardboard, hold it up and down, edgewise, and spray the area you want as an edge. Just be careful not to spray your flowers and/or bushes. Good luck
