This is a great vinegar weed killer recipe. We have pets, all our neighbors have pets, the whole darn town (such as it is) has pets, which brings me to the point that I prefer not to use crazy chemicals to kill weeds. Not to mention this is much cheaper than the chemicals.

How To Make thrifty diy weed killer

    Simply fill a spray bottle with white vinegar, and spray generously on all parts of the weed ~ leaves and root area.

    Don’t dillute ~ use full-strength vinegar, and spray earlier in the day when the weeds are in full sun. {the hotter the day, the better!} The combination of the vinegar, heat, and sunshine will make those stinky weeds shrivel up!
