    I agree with William, salt and vinegar will kill anything it touches, especially if it gets into the soil and gets to the roots of what you want to keep. Both also change the soil and won't be comparable with planting until heavily amended to bring it back to good soil health. Use them only if it is in areas like the cracks in driveways and sidewalks, rock gardens where there is plenty of space between plants or shrubs that won't affect the roots.
