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.

  1. 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.

  4. 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!
