It is only known in a niche sector such as organic farming, but this natural and environmentally friendly DIY herbicide is super-powerful. Not only that, to make about 1,6 gal you will spend less than 1 euro!
It seems impossible, but at a ridiculously low price you can shelter vegetable gardens, gardens, terraces from weeds!
There are many products on the market, but unfortunately their chemical composition hides ingredients that are potentially or harmful to our health and the environment. Not to mention that what we spray on our plants ends up on their fruits, which makes them even more dangerous, because in addition to breathing in toxic substances we could ingest them.
It is no coincidence that they call them biocides, a term derived partly from Greek, partly from Latin: bio- (βίος “that lives”) and -cida (caedĕre “to kill”): to kill that which lives.
But the alternative is there and is a common practice among ecologically conscious nurserymen.
Curious to find out what it is? Let’s get started!
The ingredients for this natural weed killer are easy to find; in fact, they are usually already in the pantry. All you need:
- plain water, 1,30 gal
- white wine vinegar, 0,25 gal
- fine salt, 2,20 Ib
To prepare up to 1,6 gal, you will spend less than one dollar.
Fill a tall, large saucepan with water, put it on the stove and bring to a boil. Add the salt and let it dissolve completely. Stir carefully and transfer everything within funnel, now pour in the vinegar and get to work, spraying the solution on the weeds.
You will see them slowly dry out, and after just a fortnight, you can effortlessly weed them out.
In short at negligible cost, you will have a herbicide that is non-toxic to the environment and to humans, super easy to make and effective.
