Spring has sprung

And along came the heavy rain showers. You’ve recovered from cancer and go for a walk through your yard to see all the beautiful plants flourishing, then you spot your least favorite plants…

WEEDS!!!

No, not marijuana unless you were intending to grow it.

Weeds are everywhere thanks to the wonderful rain. Some people like to leave them alone, but others are ready to do anything they can to get rid of them. You can dig them up or use RoundUp, but why risk your health?

Here’s how you can make your own and it’s quite simple.

On a calm day without wind, pump the solution and spray it on the leaves of the weeds. This should only be done on a warm sunny day without rain in the forecast for at least 2-3 days. Within 24 hrs you should see immediate results. A second application might be needed if you have very big weeds. I used this on dandelion weeds and poison ivy revealing incredible effectiveness. If you perform this on a windy day, the spray might land on your favorite plants

How does this work?

The 5% white vinegar is just enough acidity to kill the plant although I highly recommend this 30% Pure Vinegar which is much better for killing Poison Ivy. The dish detergent keeps the vinegar from draining off of the leaves too quickly, which helps to permeate the cell structure. The salt gets onto the soil and kills the weed for good. Be careful, the salt in the soil might prevent other plants from growing, although rain will help dilute the soil.

Optional: dig up the roots of the weed once it’s dead. Wear Playtex Gloves Rubber Gloves if it’s poison ivy roots, because the poisonous oils may remain on the vine even if it’s dead.

CAUTION

If you choose to use 30% vinegar, please read the warning label. It is recommended that you wear goggles, full skin protection and rubber gloves. It is corrosive to the skin and eyes. Only use it for garden use, not for cooking.

 

Of course, if you’d rather use a spray that has immediate results and you don’t care if you get cancer or poison your soil, then go ahead and get some Roundup.
