I have found a natural weed-killer spray. I really hate weeds and when I try to pull them from the gravel dog pen I just end up with cut fingers (yes, even with gloves on - I'm just that talented) and sandals stuck with dog poop.
Until now! I have tried a bunch of natural concoctions. Obviously, I don't want to spray an herbicide in the pen and then have the dogs walking on it, so natural was a must.
The winner killed the weeds in less than 24 hours. The recipe came from Full of Great Ideas.
vinegar (I just used regular white vinegar)
1/2 cup salt
squeeze of dish soap
That's it. Fill mostly full with the vinegar, add salt and the soap. Give a pretty good shake to combine and then spray away. This ended up being MUCH easier than pulling the weeds. I am just ecstatic.
Never did anything so crusty and dead look so beautiful!!
