Make Your Own At Home- Weed Killer

(this particular color was a result of apple cider vinegar and distilled white vinegar with the blue Dawn)


RESULTS ARE IN!

I sprayed down the weeds in the morning before it started getting warm around 10 am.   Spray the center really well so the root gets saturated.  I did read about the weed killer not harming the surrounding grass, however be careful not to spray the grass because it will kill it.  I had TONS of weeds, so I sprayed and refilled and then resorted to pouring because my hand was killing me from squirting so much.  If you should be so lucky not to be infested with weeds then the spray bottle will work great for you.   We cut the grass and all the weeds were gone AND the grass was not badly damaged.  I sprayed a day before we actually planned on getting the yard cut.  It was not very noticeable at all after all the shriveled up messes were mowed down.  The above photos were tests spots and not where there was a bunch of green grass.  All of the weeds shriveled up and turned black and it has been about 1 1/2 month and those particular previously sprayed weeds have not returned.   I wish it would send the memo out to the other weeds so we can be done with it.  I doubt that will happen so spray on!

Did you use concentrated or regular Dawn - or does it not make a difference?

Amy @Consider Me Inspired said...

Just regular Dawn! I am sure it wouldn't make a difference because it is just a squirt.

Amy @Consider Me Inspired said...

It is a standard empty windex spray bottle. 32 or 33 ounces.

Wonderful! Thank you for the photos. Do you know if this will work in shade? Under our "backyard" deck we have an overgrowth of weeds but no sun at all. Thanks!

Does the salt need to be iodized? The salt I have in my cabinet says non-iodized. Or does it not matter?

Amy Perdew said...

For it to work within its full potential, it needs full sunlight. The sunlight helps activiates the killing of the weeds.

Amy Perdew said...

I just used regular salt. Morton's was the brand I used to be specific.

I'm excited to try this! Does it have to be Dawn brand soap, or any kitchen dish soap?
