Natural Weed Killer Solutions You Can Make at Home

Weeds are a common problem for many homeowners. While there are a variety of chemical solutions available, many people prefer to use natural solutions that are safer for the environment and their families. Here are some natural weed killer solutions you can make at home.

Vinegar and Salt Solution

Vinegar and salt is a simple and effective solution for killing weeds. To make it, mix one gallon of white vinegar with one cup of salt and a few drops of dish soap. The dish soap helps the solution to stick to the weeds. Once the mixture is ready, pour it into a spray bottle and apply it directly to the weeds. This solution will kill most weeds within 24 hours.

Boiling Water

Boiling water is another effective way to kill weeds without using chemicals. Simply bring a pot of water to a boil and then carefully pour it over the weeds you want to get rid of. The boiling water will kill both the leaves and roots of the weed, so it won’t come back. Be careful not to get any boiling water on your skin or nearby plants as it can cause burns or damage them.

Corn Gluten Meal

Corn gluten meal is an organic weed killer that works by preventing weed seeds from germinating. To use it, simply spread it over your garden or lawn like you would with fertilizer. It’s important to note that corn gluten meal only works on newly germinated seeds, so you may need to reapply it every few weeks for best results.

These natural weed killer solutions are easy to make at home and can help you get rid of pesky weeds without using harsh chemicals. Keep in mind that these solutions may take longer than chemical ones, but they are much safer for your family and the environment.
