Raise your hand if you hate weeds! I totally hate weeds. Can't stand them, and they're always creeping up into my yard, between my pavers, everywhere! Most people I know use that awful poison, and while that works, I do not want to spray that stuff anywhere I step. This recipe is a great organic weed killer. It's definitely the best natural weed killer, and you can easily substitute the apple cider vinegar for white vinegar.

Here’s some weeds. My weeds. In my yard. I gotta get rid of these.

Best natural weed killer!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

I used apple cider vinegar, Epsom salt, and a spray bottle. Step 2: Pour the Vinegar in Your Bottle

I added two cups of apple cider vinegar to the bottle. If your bottle is smaller, then you'll probably have to add less. But don't worry about it; you can always refill. Step 3: Add the Epsom Salt

I funneled in a 1/4 cup of Epsom salt. Step 4: Shake Well and Spray

I shook up the bottle until the Epsom salt dissolved. Then I sprayed the weed very well.

The weeds totally dried up 24 hours later (its pretty hot right now during the summer, so that also helped). I was able to simply brush them away. I'm sure if your weeds are thicker and stronger, you might have to yank them a bit, but this weed killer will definitely help.

No more weeds! This is the best weed killer!

    Boiling hot water works as well no need to spend money on ingredients

      I tried boiling water, vinegar, pool salt, and straight ammonia and nothing worked on the grass between the cracks on my driveway!

    I sprayed Dawn dish soap directly on the weed and it killed it.
