The Ideal Homemade Weed Killer

Posted on

Using store bought weed killer is not only bad for you and the environment, but it is expensive.  I have tried many homemade versions of weed killer; however, this one works the best.



½ cup Kosher Salt

1 teaspoon Dawn Dish Detergent


Dedicate a spray bottle just for the Weed Killer. You can find pint spray bottles at the Dollar Store.  Be sure to label the bottle!  

1.   Pour vinegar into bottle leave about 2 inches at the top. 

2.  Add the ½ cup of Kosher Salt. 

3.  Squirt 1 teaspoon of Dawn Dish Detergent into the bottle. 

4.  Screw sprayer on to bottle tightly.

5.  Shake to mix.

6.  Spray those weeds!

Hint: If the sprayer on your bottle has a stream adjustment, use it to keep the Weed Killer just where you want it to go.

WARNING:  This is strong stuff! Do not spray on vegetation you want to keep. Do not spray on a windy day. Keep out of reach from children and pets.


After using Homemade Weed Killer

I would love to know how it works for you.  Let me know your results.
