I am determined to win the war against weeds that grow along my entrance. It looks like an abandoned house with all these weeds!
No need to buy specialized products and I am happy because I do not like to use products that are harmful to the environment. But it's really time for me to take care of it!
I will use one of these 5 recipes with completely natural ingredients and without any risk: make your choice!
Boiling water. The simplest recipe of all: pour boiling water on the weeds you want to destroy. The cooking water you use for your vegetables and pasta will be very useful, do not throw it in the sink, pour it on weeds.
White vinegar. Yes, white vinegar again! It's really crazy for weeds especially if you combine it with salt and dish soap! That's what worked best for me. Mix 4 cups of vinegar, ¼ cup of Epsom salt and 1 tablespoon of dish soap and spray this mixture on the weeds.
5 hours after spraying my weeds with this recipe, here's what happened.
I'm really happy with the results! I'll go back to some spots and spray the mix and they'll all be dead! So effective!
Rubbing alcohol. I also tried this recipe: mix 4 cups of water and ½ cup of rubbing alcohol and spray the weeds with this mixture. [Pub]
After 5 hours after spraying this mixture, here is the result.
Weeds are almost dead. So a little less effective than vinegar-salt-soap, but still effective!
Salt. Mix 3 cups of water and 1 cup of coarse salt. Pour the salt water into a spray bottle and generously spray the weeds.
Corn flour. After killing weeds, sprinkle with corn flour to prevent them from growing.
In all cases, weeds will be dead in less than 24 hours, you will only have to pull them out so that the plants can be easily removed.
