This is actually a repost from a few years ago. The dandelions are out in full force and I thought it might be worth sharing this simple recipe again.
Several years ago, I came across this recipe for a homemade weed killer. It was shared by Shell Busey. I love the fact that it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, so I don’t have to worry about it being harmful for small children or the neighbourhood pets that like to frequent our yard. The only caution with this mixture is that it will kill your grass and flowers if you spray it on them by accident. He suggests only using this to kill the weeds that may crop up on your driveway, sidewalk or through ground cover.
Shell Busey’s Homemade Weed Killer Recipe:
Mix the following ingredients together:
- 4 cups of white vinegar
- 1/4 cup of table salt
- 2 tsp of liquid dish soap
Pour this mixture into a spray bottle and spray it on your weeds when it is sunny and hot out.
