Thanks so much, Bergy! I have been using this(a combo of white vinegar, Lux Liquid and salt) and it works like magic! Very good recipe; one I'd hope many give a try to.

Salt is terrible for your soil. Chemicals in the standard sprays degrade within a month or so. Salt never does. So though you don't want your kid or pet to drink it from the bottle, relatively soon after use your weeds are dead down to the roots, and the chemicals are gone from your soil. However, salting the dirt ruins the garden.

This worked faster than the store bought weed killer. It killed the weeds in the rocks overnight. This worked as well as the other organic weed killer I tried. Thanks Bergy. Bullwinkle

This is fantastic. Mixed up a batch right in a spray bottle and sprayed my cobblestone walk way. The grass and weeds had wilted less than 2 hours later! I'm very impressed with the price (CHEAP!) and the lack of harmful chemicals. Will be making this regurarly!

Like the others, I love this stuff!! It's awesome!! I sprayed it in the morning and that afternoon, they were dead. I don't know how long they'll stay dead but now that I have a great recipe for attacking them, I'm all over it!! Plus it's ALOT cheaper than Roundup which stinks to high heaven!!! Yeah, Bergy!!!!!

I live in the desert with a gravel yard so when I spray I don't have to worry about the salt killing other plants because I only have weeds.

It took quite a dousing for this to finally knock out the weeds in the french drain (although they were Texas weeds, lol, probably bigger and tougher than your average weed ;o), but once it worked, it definitely worked! I'm going to keep a batch mixed for future use; I love the fact that it's safe around the kids and animals. Thanks Bergy!!
