Organic Weed Control

Summer weather conditions sometimes cause excessive weeds to grow in street cracks and along curb lines.  The City of Miamisburg makes an effort to eliminate excessive weeds in these locations by trimming growth and applying an herbicide.  Local citizens who may want to join in this effort on their property are reminded that there are effective ways to kill weeds organically.  The use of household vinegar and salt water work to varying degrees, and the City is providing the following recipes for those residents who may be interested in this remedy.

Recipe #1
• In a bowl, mix 1 ¼ cups salt and 1 gallon white vinegar together.
• Stir the ingredients properly and pour inside a spray bottle.
• When the sun is highest during the day, spray directly on the weeds.

Recipe #2
• In a bowl, mix 1 quart white vinegar and ½ cup lemon juice together.
• Stir the ingredients properly and pour inside a spray bottle.
• Spray directly on the weeds to kill them.

Recipe #3
• In a bucket, mix 1 gallon white vinegar and 4 oz. dish detergent together.
• Pour in a spray bottle and spray directly on the weeds.
• In few hours, you'll see that the leaves are drying and turning brown.
• This is a pet safe weed killer.

Recipe #4
• In a bucket, mix 1 gallon white vinegar, 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, and 1 cup salt together.
• Stir the ingredients properly so the salt dissolves properly.
• Pour in a spray bottle and apply directly on the weeds.

Recipe #5
• In a bucket, mix 1 gallon white vinegar, 1 teaspoon liquid dish soap, and few drops of orange oil together.
• Stir the ingredients properly, pour in a spray bottle, and apply directly over the weeds.

Recipe #6
• In a bucket, mix 2 parts white vinegar, 1 part liquid dish soap, and 2 parts hot water together.
• Mix all the ingredients properly, pour inside a spray bottle, and apply directly on the weeds.
• In few hours, the weeds would start to shrivel and die.
