Recipe for natural weed killer

Recipes for Natural Weed Killer: The best thing is you do not have to worry about breathing harmful toxins. Also, it is safe for kids and pets. Natural weed killers not only kill the weeds but is easy to make. Use this inexpensive formula of Epsom salt, white vinegar, and dish detergent to make a non-toxic weed killer

It is the best DIY homemade safe weed spray that will not harm the water supply. This is not an exact science – approximate measures are totally fine. Again – no stress… a little more or less of anything and it will still work. Tip: it works twice as well on a hot sunny day.

  • 1 gallon of white vinegar
  • 2 cups of Epsom salt
  • 1/4 cup of liquid dish detergent (The detergent will help it stick to the leaves )
  • Weed sprayer or a spray bottle
  • Using a funnel pour the salt into the empty container and then add the vinegar, leaving a little room at the top for the dish soap. Place the lid on the container and shake the vinegar and salt together. I recommend letting this mixture sit for an hour to allow the salt to dissolve before adding the dish soap. After you add the dish soap put the lid on the container and shake it. Then pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Then spray the weeds with the mixture. Bigger weeds may need more spray than the smaller ones. It can take 24 hours for the weeds to die if it is sunny. Don’t spray plants you want to keep or grass as it will kill both.
  • Removing moss from cracks organically is easy peasy. Just takes a bit of time and elbow grease.

Our moss removal brush will work for organic gardens easily.

How to get rid of weeds without chemicals?

This receipt is stronger than the vinegar method.

How to remove moss from paver cracks organically first combine 1/2 cup of household bleach with 5 cups water in a spray bottle. For smaller or larger quantities, mix 1 part bleach with 10 parts water.

Moss cleans up better with 10 to 20 percent bleach and water than the salt and vinegar method. Consequently, not as gentle on your garden.

Leave it to soak for 15 minutes Scrub it down. Rinse with water. Let it dry out, then use our weed removal brush in the crevices only and broom or hose down the rest.

 I would try these receipts before using store chemicals. Sometimes you really need to use strong chemicals but hopefully, you will stay on top of it and only use chemicals once. For maintenance, both these methods are healthy alternatives to roundup. 

When it comes to increasing the curb appeal of your home, getting rid of moss on your pavers is a great place to start. However, not everyone knows how to kill it organically. Moss multiplies if left unattended, but staying on top of problem areas before it become overrun is key to moss control.
