Protecting America’s Waters

Vinegar as pesticide

Use gallon of vinegar on weeds instead of using pesticides. Vinegar kills weeds dead, is exceedingly cheaper than toxins and does no harm to groundwater.

    I agree with this idea. I think the average American has far too much access to chemicals on store shelves they know or understand very little about.

    I accidently clicked on disagree. I agree or at least open to try this.

    This is a super idea. Vinegar is relatively inexpensive, non-threatening to the soil-as far as I know- and, according to you, it gets the job done in terms of eliminating weeds. I use vinegar for many things: cleaning floors, windows, etc. I use apple cider vinegar for exfoliating my face, and for rubbing on my hair and scalp as a way to reduce dandruff. It works!
