All Time Best #10: Weed Killing!

by Ivory Soap

In honor of our 1000th post in October 2014, we are counting down our most popular posts of all time. Each has received over 100K hits, and some as high as 500K! This week, at #10, is “Weed Killing!”


It’s an herbicide drift eliminator! Ever try to kill something lame and accidentally injure your awesome stuff? If you’ve ever had a dog that wasn’t supposed to scratch his face, you have the perfect solution to your problem!

Oh, and here’s the recipe for my weed killer…

Ivory’s Non-Selective Herbicide

2c vinegar
1 T liquid soap
1 T salt
Dog cone

Mix first three ingredients in spray bottle. Will kill anything it touches. Place doggie cone over weeds. Spray, don’t pour or nothing will grow there for a while.

Thank you! I was wondering what kind of soap you use? Something like Bronners? Or antibacterial?

Emily Q–Any old soap will do! Just needs to be well-dissolved so it will go through the sprayer. Thanks!

I use the real deal Round Up and apply it using a wet felt swab on the end of a stick. One swipe across any weed’s leaves will wipe it out for good.

Round Up (glyphosate, in combination with inert ingredients just as bad) besides being toxic to humans and animals is also toxic to earthworms and beneficial insects. Daisy, your natural herbicide is so much better and safer !
