This past spring, Wilmington had a bit of a dry spell. Local utilities were asking residents to water wisely and limit their use. When we finally got rain, it seemed like all of the plants were playing catch-up — including the weeds in my yard. I usually weed by hand, but it was overwhelming. Time to pull out the weed killer.
I don’t know about you, but with kids and pets running around, I’m always trying to avoid using harmful chemicals around my house. This is why I use a simple 3-ingredient weed killer with trusted elements.

What You Need:
- 2 Cups White Vinegar
- 1 Cup Epsom Salt
- 1/4 Cup Dawn Dish Soap
- 24 Ounce Heavy-Duty Spray Bottle (I use glass)
- Mix the vinegar, Epsom salt, and Dawn dish soap in a bowl. Make sure salt completely dissolves so the sprayer does not clog.
- Pour into the spray bottle.
- Spray on dry weeds.
- Wait 24 hours. The weeds will turn brown and die.
Important: Make sure there is no rain in the forecast for 24 hours and avoid spraying on plants you want to keep. This spray is best used for weeds popping up in cracks and along sidewalks.
