    I use one cup of salt, one cup of vinegar to two gallons of water in a garden sprayer. Saturate the weeds till dripping. The object is to get at the roots. Lasted with no weeds for three years in my gravel walk. Don not use on lawn. Will kill the grass.

    Mix 1 gallon of cleaning vinegar, which can be purchased at many grocery stores, with Two cups if Epsom salts and 1/4 cup of original Dawn dishwashing detergent. Spray on the leaves of weeds. You may need a second application in a week or so. I have found it to work very well.

      Can it be use on weeds throughout the grass and not killing grass?

  • Absolutely! Here is what I use. Boiling water. Epsom salt followed by boiling water. Vinegar. Plain old vinegar. Easy, quick, simple and environmentally friendly. For your rocks, fill a pump sprayer with vinegar and spray away. Best done after morning dew has dried. Vinegar is cheap and water soluble. I purchase at big box warehouse or restaurant supply. Less than $2 a gallon.
