Hi Sakesan: The recipe I use is:
1 gallon of white vinegar
2 cups of Epsom salts
1/4 cup of dish washing detergent, like Dawn.
Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved.
Mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy, sort of swirl it around.
Put in a spray bottle 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. I have used this and it works quite well. 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
Another recipe is:
WEED KILLER WITH DAWN
1 cup of salt
1 Tbsp liquid Dawn
Combine ingredients and put into a spray bottle and spray the weeds at the sunniest time of day.
This mix is very effective so make sure it doesn’t spray on something you DON’T want to kill.

I use straight vinegar, but be careful it will kill everything, so you need target what you want gone.
