Would this affect my garden at all? Want the weeds gone but don't want to kill my garden. Also, what about grass, does it kill grass or just weeds?

I had tried the other recipe of 2 cups white vinegar, 1Tbsp. salt, and 1 Tbsp. dawn liquid, and it worked on some weeds, but not others. I sprayed all weeds not just dandelions. Maybe that White vinegar recipe wasn't strong enough???? Any thoughts? I had purchased over 4 gallons of white vinegar and sprayed the heck out of my Mom's lawn and I really don't see the results I was hoping to see.
