Homemade Organic Weed Killer
There is nothing more frustrating that weeds eating up your lawn and garden. I must of spent hours picking up weeds in peoples lawns trying to make a buck and it is ridiculous. I feel like weeds are a waste of time and effort, but if you don’t get them done they’ll kill everything that you’ve worked so hard to grow! I come bearing a solution and that’s organic weed killer!
If you’re like me you do not support the use of GMO’s and harmful chemicals being used to kill pests and increase “yield.” (year right Monsonto.) This leaves you with the option of creating your own organic weed killer. It wont harm your food or put chemicals in the ground, it isn’t made from some factory thousands of miles away and it works just fine
The advantage of making your own organic weed killer is great. You save money, time and it gives you the opportunity to go out there and buy a bottle of Gin! I must of forgot to mention that there is TWO organic weed killer recipes that I’m going to be sharing in this article! So without further delay, let’s break down these diys!
Organic Weed Killer Recipe #1
- 1 gallon distilled vinegar
- 1-cup household salt
- 1 tbsp dish detergent
- Spray bottle
Mix all ingredients in large kettle and heat over medium heat until the salt is completely dissolved. You do not have to boil the ingredients.
Set aside to cool.
Once the vinegar solution has cooled, pour it into a spray bottle.
Organic Weed Killer Recipe #2
- 1 tbsp gin
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 tsp dish detergent

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and pour into a spray bottle.
Now this organic weed killer may not be suitable for your garden. It will kill absolutely any vegetation it comes into contact with. You can use it in a garden if it’s far from plants and flowers however if not do not use this in your garden. On the plus side it works great for cracks in sidewalks and on your foundation.
