How To Kill Weeds Using Vinegar Instead Of Roundup


Please, consider in the future using vinegar instead of roundup. The result will be exactly the same. If you need a proof that vinegar was a weed terminator, then look at the pictures below. One was taken in the afternoon, and the second the next day after Kevin sprayed them with straight-from-the-bottle, store-brand white vinegar.

Adding a cup of salt to the gallon of white vinegar will not only kill the weeds, it will keep them from coming back, too. Only use where you never want to grow anything ever again, though. The results are not temporary. I only add salt when I use it on sidewalk cracks and my gravel driveway.

I have tried it twice and it didn’t work. Must be a strong % acidity than you can buy at the grocery store.

in Germany it is forbidden to use vinegar or salt for privat gardening! Also “round up” is forbidden. Please don´t use any herbizid! Or do you want to kill all the litte animals which are so helpflull, or do you like to eat herbizids???

But to do a good job you need 20% horticultural vinegar rather than 5% household vinegar
