    Bring one gallon of white vinegar to a boil, add one cup
    of regular table salt and simmer until the salt
    dissolves. Cool the mixture. When cool, add 8 drops of
    detergent. We used Dawn - any detergent will do.

    3. Super Weed Killer- Combine 1/2 c. Dawn Dish soap, 1 gallon of vinegar and 1/4 cup salt. Works great on Poison Oak and Poison Ivy. Doesn't wash off easily in rain due to the addition of dish soap.

    With any of the homemade recipes, it's best to use on a warm day (with no rain predicted for 24 hours).

    In a 1-quart spray bottle, pour 4 ounces of lemon juice concentrate (you
    can get the cheap stuff ... it works just as well), then fill the bottle
    up with white vinegar (28 ounces). Vinegar (on sale) costs around a penny
    per ounce and the lemon juice concentrate I bought was 3 cents per ounce.

    For the mixture detailed above, that's a total of 12 cents for lemon
    juice and 28 cents for vinegar, which means the homemade version costs 40
    cents per quart instead of $8!
