Works for Me Wednesday--Killing Weeds Around my Dog
Rocks in My Dryer hosts "Works for Me Wednesdays" where everyone shares helpful tips that make life easier.
Last year, our brick patio was invaded by hundreds of weeds. The hubby and I don't like to use weed killer, so last year, we boiled water and annihilated the weeds with that method. It was a pain in the butt to boil the water and walk outside holding a pot with heavy-duty oven mitts. I'm sure the neighbors were amused at the sight.
This year, I was doing some research online and discovered that vinegar is a natural weedkiller. Why isn't this simple remedy proclaimed all over? I took a three dollar jug of white vinegar and poured it on the patio. A few hours later, the weeds were no longer a bright green.
The best part of all, I didn't have to worry about the dog licking at the weed killer!
