    breezermom's Note:

    This weed killer is non-discriminatory....it kills what it is sprayed on, so be careful where you spray it. The good thing about this is that it is easy to make and very economical. Make sure you label it and store it out of the hands of inquisitive children. If you spray this multiple times in the same spot, nothing will grow there for a very long time....perfect for cracks in your driveway and in sidewalks.

      I have not tried this recipe and will not. I believe the reviews that say it has worked for them, but these ingredients can damage/kill not only plants but your soil and microorganisms too. Salt is especially problematic. Read more before using the recipe so you can exercise the proper precautions.

      It works! I only made a half a cup to try it out and poured it on several types of weeds in my yard. It worked on regular dandelion weeds and a tree weed but didn't work on palm tree seedlings...but if I poured more of it on them it probably would. My regular vinegar is only 4% acidity so I added some concentrated vinegar. Thanks for this all natural recipe. Made for the Zaar Stars tag game.

      I love recipes that re-create expensive products for a fraction of the price. I reduced this recipe to 1/4 of the original, or 32 oz. (1 quart). It worked great! I will surely save some money in the coming summers! Thanks for sharing, breezermom!
