    Re: Weed killer




    I read somewhere to kill weeds pour boiling water on it. Around the
    house is find, but that seems like a lot of work for ditches

    Hope this helps some.

    we use old carpets on spring bamboo (aka knotweed, japanese bamboo etc etc)
    .. they're invasive as all heck and build a tolerance to the sprays .. but
    wants the light --(evil laugh) -- no light no plant ..

    Please help! My son is helping clean out the kiddie playground at
    church. One person wants to use Round-Up to kill the weeds and grass
    that is growing up through the mulch. I need other, safer options.

    I've heard of using boiling water or vinegar will kill them.

    Vinegar, but the higher % that you can get where
    natural products are sold. Several of our feed stores
    care organic, just call around and stress to them not
    to use Round up~~~it pollutes the soil and causes long
    term damage and is just bad all around. If nothing
    else, get the area wet and start digging or pulling
    the weeds.
    Hope this helps some.

    Here are a few different "home" weed killers which won't be harmful to
    the kids.

    1. Vinegar will work for area's like weeds growing in cracks of cement.
    I'm not sure if it kills grass, too, so I'd keep it to the cement. Pour
    it all over, and in a few days, just sweep up the remains. The smell
    should disappear shortly.

    2. Rock Salt will kill weeds, but sprinkle it lightly, and carefully,
    because it will kill grass and flowers, too!

    3. In a 32oz spray bottle, combine 1 oz Gin, 1 oz Liquid Soap, and 1 oz
    Vinegar, fill the rest with water, and spray the weeds.

    4. Boiled water will kill weeds- just pour it on the weeds, and watch
    them disappear.

    Hope those help!
