GOT WEEDS???? A Biodegradable Solution!
Don't promote "Round-Up"
Homemade Weed Killer: 1 gallon of white vinegar, 1/2 cup salt, & a few squirts of liquid dish soap. It's cheap, very safe, biodegradable, and works fast!!!
How to Apply: You can use a watering can, a spray bottle or a pump-sprayer to apply vinegar. A pump-sprayer works best because it is more efficient. Do not dilute the vinegar, pour right from the jug to the sprayer. Be sure to rinse your sprayer after use, or metal parts (if any) can corrode.
Make your application on a warm, sunny, calm (not windy) day. Vinegar is not selective; it can potentially harm plants you wish to keep, should you accidentally spray them. Use vinegar on walkways, where grass and ornamental plants are not an issue.
Will vinegar kill every weed in every garden? Not sure, but it's been known to keep pathways free of unwanted growth. The soap helps the liquid mix stick to the weeds, and it's antibacterial in places where kids and pets may play!
Make this a part of your garden ritual and you wont be sorry!
Monsanto, the product’s evil manufacturer, agreed with the New York Attorney General’s office to discontinue their use of the terms “biodegradable” and “environmentally friendly” in ads promoting Roundup. Why? Because these terms were untruthful. Roundup is neither biodegradable nor environmentally friendly.
Be sure to pass and share this with friends!
