How to Make Organic Alternatives to Roundup Weed Killer

By eHow Contributor Found This Helpful How to Make Organic Alternatives to Roundup Weed Killer thumbnail

The active ingredient that makes Roundup Weed Killer so effective is glyphosate. Unfortunately, the surfactant in Roundup is said to be even more toxic than glyphosate, and in combination, the two are more toxic still! Rather than expose yourself and family (not to mention animals and wildlife) to glyphosate that has been linked to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, try these organic alternatives to Roundup Weed Killer to have a weed free lawn and garden

Things You'll Need

  • White vinegar
  • Salt
  • Vegetable based liquid dish soap
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Water
  • Garden sprayer
  • Tea kettle

Instructions

  • 1 White Vinegar can Kill Weeds

    For Garden Sprayer, organic weed killer recipe #1:

    In a bucket, mix one quart of white vinegar with ¼ cup of salt. Stir till salt dissolves. Slowly add two teaspoons of vegetable based liquid dish soap. Gently mix and pour solution in your garden sprayer.

    Spray directly on the offending weeds at the base using the narrow stream setting. Best if used in direct sunlight and when rain is NOT in the forecast. This organic Alternative to Roundup Weed Killer works well for those weeds growing sidewalk cracks.

  • 2 Organic Dish Soap can Kill Weeds

    For Garden Sprayer, organic weed killer recipe #2:

    Pour three quarts of white vinegar in a bucket or directly into your garden sprayer. Slowly pour in one quart of vegetable based liquid dish soap, gently swish to mix.

    Spray on leaves and the base of the plants, again using a narrow stream. Be sure to spray only the plants you wish to kill as this is not a selective organic weed killer.

    Do not water for three days. Reapply if rain falls before the three days are up.

  • 3 Rubbing Alcohol can Kill Weeds

    For Garden Sprayer, organic weed killer recipe #3:

    Pour one quart water into your garden sprayer and add one tablespoon rubbing alcohol. Spray the undersides of the weed you want to kill with a thorough light mist. Again, use care not to spray non-target plants.

    Increase alcohol content for stubborn weeds.

  • 4 Table Salt can Kill Weeds

    For Garden Sprayer, organic weed killer recipe #4

    Here is another organic Alternative to Roundup Weed Killer for weeds that grow in the cracks of your sidewalk only.

    Lightly spray sidewalk weeds with water. Sprinkle weeds with a light layer of table salt. Lightly wet the weeds again. Be sure not to use too much water, you don't want to wash off the salt or cause runoff.

  • 5 Boiling water will kill weeds

    Boiling water method

    This is the simplest organic weed killer. Boil water in your tea kettle, pour it directly on the offending weeds. Be sure to pour close to the weed to minimize splatter and use just enough to cover the weed(s).
