Yesterday morning, a fellow member of our local COG chapter forwarded me an e-mail containing this recipe for an organic weed killer. It had been sent to him by some friends who had heard about it on a radio program (unknown). In their opinion, it “works like a charm.”
Organic Weed Killer
- 4 cups of white vinegar
- 1/4 cup table salt
- 2 teaspoons of dish soap
Mix spray on weeds in sunshine if possible.
When I e-mailed back to thank him for forwarding the recipe, indicating that we’ll be anxious to try it out at our house, he replied that I should be careful, because it will kill any plants it is sprayed on, including, I assume, grass. This organic weed killer is probably best used for killing weeds in the cracks of sidewalks, or large patches of weeds in the middle of the lawn, but may not be appropriate for killing individual weeds in the middle of the lawn, since it will also impact on the surrounding grass.
If anyone gives it a try, let me know how it works! I’d also like to hear about any other recipes for organic weed control.
