I found a simple recipe online awhile ago for an herbicide. very simple and easy. So today I decided to whip up a batch and try it out on this obnoxious vine that I seem to be allergic to. Not poison ivy ....or oak. Not sure what it is. I will snag a picture of it later and post it.
Here is the recipe.
1 gallon vinegar
1 cup of salt
a dash of dish soap.
warm vinegar and add salt until dissolved. Let cool, add dish soap.
Now I made a half batch:
1/2 gal vinegar (white)
1/2 C salt
I brought the vinegar to the point of almost simmering and poured the salt in (kinda slow, didn't just dump it in) and stirred until dissolved. I then let it cool and slowly drizzled the dish soap in as I stirred. I used Lavender ultra Dawn. smells SOOOOO good!!! I used about one tablespoon.
I then let it finish cooling, poured some into a spray bottle and sprayed that vine.
The warning is you have to just spray the leaves of the plants you want dead. DO NOT SPRAY until dripping. Just give it a nice covering and then WALK AWAY! lol! seriously you do not want it on your soil or other plants. That is the warning given to me.
I sprayed some of the nasty vine leaves and some weeds growing in the side walk. I will take before and after pictures. Not sure how long this takes.
ok...getting camera now! :) be back!
