With so much news about the dangers of the chemical glysophate found in most commercial weed killers, you might wonder: What's an effective and natural alternative? If you'd rather not pull weeds out by hand, consider mixing together white vinegar, some liquid dish soap and salt to make a DIY spray. According to HGTV, all you need is a gallon of vinegar, a cup of salt and a tablespoon of soap. Mix well and spray on top of weeds. It works because the acidic mixture draws out moisture from the weeds. For large weeds with thick roots, pulling them out by hand will be the most effective method.
