How To Create Homemade Weed Killers

homemade weed killersEveryone wants to kill all of the weeds in their yard and have a nice clean field of green. There are so many weed killer products available that you can really never know which ones work. What you may not know is that there are some ways to make a homemade weed killer.

If you are cautious of the environment and don’t want to end up killing your grass and your weeds you should look into an alternative to regular toxic weed killers. With all of the toxins in the environment some people don’t want to further pollute the air we all breathe. I love natural solutions to everyday problems. Here is a great homemade weed killer.

1 tablespoon of gin or vinegar
1 teaspoon of dish soap
1 gallon of hot water

What you can then do is put this into an old spray bottle or pour it over the weeds. I prefer to spray it on the weeds. When you are spraying your new homemade weed killer be careful no to spray the grass. The vinegar will kill the weeds but it could also kill some grass. You should spray the weed killer during a sunny and hot day. After the weeds bake in the sun for a couple of days the weeds will be dead.

If you are worried about your grass then you should be very careful when spraying the solution. Basically the vinegar kills the weeds and the soap makes the vinegar stick to the leaves of the weeds. Always remember to protect yourself as well. You will probably want to wear your gardening gloves so your hands don’t get covered in vinegar and you end up with stinky hands.

The great thing about using this solution is that it is natural. Natural solutions are essential for a cleaner environment. Although this may seem impossible, every effort helps. The homemade weed killer will also provide natural chemicals that will help keep the rest of your yard nice and green.
