Use Vinegar As An Effective Weed Killer

Vinegar Home Uses

Normal household vinegar can be used as an effective weed killer against annual and perennial weeds such as dandelions, foxtail, pigweed and thistle. The acid in the vinegar acts as a herbicide and if you heat up the vinegar it will make it even more effective. Older, more established weeds may need to have vinegar apply to them more than once.

    I found that it was much cheaper to use vinegar for killing my weeds that expensive weed killing chemical sprays.
