Kid, Pet and Wallet Friendly Weed Killer: My Attempt at the Dish Soap & Vinegar DIY Plant Murderer | mrsmommymack.com

For the first time, my husband and I are in charge of keeping a house from falling to shambles. And let’s just say we don’t know the first thing about… anything. So, I get a LOT of my tips from Pinterest.

While cleaning up my yard today, I noticed our cracked sidewalk was looking a little extra Jumanji. I have turned a little crunchy now that I’m almost 30 and am trying to use vinegar to clean with and any other way I can be a little bit more “natural.” I found this website that discussed the many options available to use vinegar to kill off weeds.

All I knew was I had some dish soap and vinegar, so, I was giving that a whirl!

I had a bottle of dish soap that was almost empty — about two tablespoons remained. I filled the rest of the bottle with white vinegar until it looked like this:

For the record, the squirt bottle the dish soap comes in was PERFECT for getting in the cracks. I will definitely be keeping it around. After I got it all soaked up (about two bottles worth) I let it sit in the sun for a few hours. I finished squirting at about 11 am and this was what I had at 4:30 pm after I swept:
