Hi Karen: I use the following:
1 gallon of white vinegar
2 cups of Epsom Salt
Mix these together until the salt is dissolved.
Then add 1/4 cup of liquid dish soap and swirl until all is mixed well.
Put into a spray bottle and spray just the plants you want to kill. Spray in the morning once the dew has dried and by evening, the plants should be dead. Some need a second helping :) Good luck
