Do it yourself tips

Organic Weed Killer

NATURAL killer without poisons.   We all need to be extra careful about using any type of chemical that could end up in the water.   Most of us feel that way - but what to use?  The following recipe works without risking out waterways -

1 Gallon white vinegar
1/2 cup salt
1/8 cup liquid dish soap
Mix and saturate the weeds.  Using it in the morning on a hot sunny day speeds the process along.
This is great stuff, super easy to make, inexpensive, and good for the environment..
