    Dawn dish liquid, vinegar, water, and salt. The dawn is a wetting agent so the some of the chemicals stay on the plant. Do not use on lawn or garden,

    Hi Vanessa: This may be what you're looking for. Two different recipes, so you have a choice:)

    I've heard this works. Don't know if it will kill the flowers, though:(

    1 gallon of Vinegar

    2 cups epsom salt

    1/4 cup of the original BLUE Dawn dish soap

    Mix in a spayer.

    It should kill anything you spray it on. Mix and spray in the morning and after the dew has evaporated. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. By evening, the weeds should be all gone.


    1 gallon white vinegar

    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.

    Good luck
