Apple cider vinergar works for weed control

Was bouncing around the internet and read a post by a lady who said she used full strength apple cider vinegar to kill weeds. She put the stuff in a spray bottle and hits each plant with a solid stream .

I have a crushed gravel walkway where dandelions, crab grass and such are growing in and as I had a gallon of apple cider vinegar here left by a relative of my ex wife's who stayed here for awhile plus a spray bottle, I thought I'd give it a try.

It works. Plus my walkway now has a nice apple cider vinegar smell to it. At least until it rains anyways.

1. White Vinegar

Works really well too. I have been useing it for weed control for years. I have alot of wild animal feeders in my yard so I cannot spray weed killers or any toxic stuff out there.It would be a breech of trust.

2. I use white vinegar on moss

seems to work best on a hot day, and you might have to repeat but it sure beats using chemicals
