    mix one cup bleach to 3 cups water in a bucket. Don't spray this mix as it could get on your skin and in your eyes. Wear clothes that can get bleach spots. Pour over the cracks and weeds. They will die in a day or two. The bleach mix will dissipate and not make for toxic ground. Be careful near the edges of the grass or flowers so those don't get killed.

    This is what I call "let's see if the car is in park"? People swear by boiling water. Might be worth a try before you try the others. If it doesn't work you can try the others. They all seem legit.

    I use one cup of salt in one gallon of water. Spray the weed s till dripping wet. The object is to get at the roots. Warning, this will kill everything.
