How To Kill Weeds With Vinegar

Growing your own garden is the best way to pesticide-free plants and vegetables. You might have a green thumb but may not be fond of pulling pesky weeds when they spring up. Using harsh chemicals not only kill weeds, but they can seep into the soil and wreak havoc on your plants and vegetables. Follow these easy steps to find out how to make an organic weed killer out of vinegar.

Step 1: You will need

  • White distilled vinegar
  • 1 spray bottle

Step 2: Bottle It Up

Pour some white distilled vinegar into your spray bottle. Use vinegar with a 15-20% acetic level. The stronger the acetic level, the more effective your spray will be.

Step 3: Control Your Weeds

On a dry day in your garden, liberally spray the weeds with vinegar. Make sure not to spray your other plants or vegetables as they will also feel the burn if they come into contact with the vinegar. In a couple days your garden will be free and clear of those offensive weeds.

Step 4: Done.
