Four "Killer" Ideas to Get Rid of Weeds Forever
Got weeds? Do they keep coming back even when you pull them out? Here are four easy peasy ways to get rid of them forever with things you already have in your cupboard.
Method One: Boil plain water in either a kettle or a sauce pan.
Pour the boiling water directly on the weed making sure you pour the water on the ground surround the weed to get the roots.
This works instantly. As you pour the water, the leaves begin to curl up.
Same weed...dead! This is after 24 hours.
Huge shout out to The Chemistry Cachet for this recipe!
- 3 cups white vinegar
- 3/4 cup table salt
- 2 tsp blue Dawn
- 3 tsp arthritis rub that contains methyl salicylate which is wintergreen oil (this is the secret ingredient)
Mix all of the ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle.
I sprayed this mixture on clover. Clover is one tough weed to kill.
This is after 4 hours...dead! After 24 hours, it was complete gone.
Method Three: White vinegar and lemon juice. The ration is 1:1 so if you use one cup of white vinegar, use one cup of lemon juice. Mix the two ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle.
I sprayed three wee weeds. Spray until entire area is saturated.
This is after 24 hours. Can you see them? No? That's because they're dead!
Method Four: Bleach
Pour bleach directly onto the weed. This works instantly as you will see the leave begin to curl.
This weed is really hardy with deep roots.
This is after 4 hours...dead! After 24 hours is completely gone.
There are plants around this weed and it didn't affect them at all. I was very careful to pour the bleach directly onto the weed.
I also have three dogs and I kept them away from this area while I used this method.
This may be a method to use only on weeds you absolutely can't get rid of. You know the ones.

Before the spring ...use one of your weed killers to kill the seeds ...till up your area treat it with weed killer ..then cover the area with dark plastic...make sure plastic is weighted down so not to be blown away...
Good luck....the whole idea is ti kill the seeds before spring
