NancyJ This approach takes time..........For a large area like a vegetable garden, you can also lay down thick paper or cardboard and just let it sit for awhile if you are not in a rush (cover with rocks or something to hold it in place)........this is better for spot treatment but I have even killed poison ivy with vinegar and patience. Same with Bermuda Grass.

Thank you!!! I've been trying to figure out what to use to kill off the weeds where I want to start a vegetable garden that won't harm pets.

Courtney I mainly use it on the cracks in the driveway & walkway to the front door.

Nigel We've killed weeds with straight vinegar, not in your lawn though, just curbs etc...

Courtney It really does work best on hot dry sunny days. Get it down in the AM. Takes a couple of days.

I pretty much use the same ratio that Twyla posted.

wildwolf60 Huh, didn't work when I tried it last year, but then maybe my weeds are worse.

NancyJ Safe. Takes some time. Works. Does best in areas where the sun can get to the weeds..if you need stronger you can buy horticultural (20% vs 5%) vinegar.

Twyla 1 gallon vinegar
1 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup detergent
