CHEAP weed killer

Here is a recipe for a cheap weed killer that works. After the dew has gone spray the weeds and come back in the evening and see your results.

1 gallon vinegar
2 cups Epson salt
1/4 cup dawn blue original dish soap

mix in sprayer and spray

Re: CHEAP weed killer

Anything I sprayed it on so far has died. Worked good so far for me. Haven't sprayed poison tho.

Re: CHEAP weed killer

This concoction will work immediately (2hours) the weeds will start wilting.
