    Pull then out then spray weed killer in the place they were

  • Boiling water or epsom salt followed by boiling water or vinegar. I do all of them. Vinegar will kill anything it comes in contact with, so be careful around plants you wish to keep.

    If by safest, you mean least likely to harm pets or wildlife, use boiling water. I get an electric tea pot with the extension cord, fill it from the hose, and douse the weeds I want to kill when the water starts to boil. It takes a while, but leaves no residue. After the plants wilt, go back and collect them so that any seed pods don't get replanted.

    Spray weed killer, wait until they will and than pull out. Deleted vinegar sprayed into the soil to get to any remaining roots.

    I use one cup of bleach, one cup of salt to two gallons of water in a garden sprayer. Spray them down till saturated. The object is to get down to the roots. Especially dandelions. Their roots can be up to three feet long.

    Boiling salt water works. Just pour it on. I killed off an Oregon grape doing that. I used rock salt.

    Charcoal lighter fluid/ gas/ or paint thinner and a match.

    I know gas will do it but I'm scared.
