DIY Weed Killer

 I’ll be trying this.  Anyone used this method before? Did it work for you? 

DIY Weed Killer


Here is another weed killer option for you to make that will be safe for your environment and tough on weeds…


1 gallon of white vinegar

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup liquid dish soap (any brand)


Pour 1 cup of vinegar from gallon bottle, set aside to use in other things.


Put salt in the gallon jug(funnel works great) and shake until all salt is dissolved, fill it with the dish soap simply shake up jug to mix well.


Set aside and mark jug as weed killer. Pour in spray bottles and use as needed. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.

    Garden over run with weeds. Can I spray whole area then plant later?

    • admin

      I have done large areas of my garden but I’m fairly conscious not to let to much get onto the soil. I try and spray just the vegetation without having it drip to much.

    Any suggestions on weed killers for beds with flowers in them?

    • gord

      If they are close to the flower I spray my gloves with the weed killer and run the leaves of the weed between my gloves or I get an old water bottle or milk jug and cut both top and bottom off forming a cylinder. I then place the cylinder over the weed and spray the weed killer inside the cylinder which of course has the weed inside but keep the flower or desirable plant safe. There is always the good old dig em up if everything else fails.

    Will this kill tendar veggies?

    • gord

      It will kill most plants if applied during a hot sunny day. I’ve never sprayed it on Tender Veggies but I assume it would kill them.
