Diy alternative for other ways to make money weed-b-gone or roundup homemade recipe is effective and safe

Do you hate the weeds? We do! We have many parts of our yard covered in weed other ways to make money barrier, a project that we have been slowly working on over other ways to make money the years. It works great for some areas, but some simply cannot be covered, or we get these weeds that seep through the barrier, especially on the sides. Not to mention the pesky weeds that grow between the other ways to make money concrete divides or cracks.

Well, we personally are not a fan of either weed-B-gone or round up or other similar formulas for a other ways to make money very harsh way to kill weeds. We have concerns with it in regards to our foods other ways to make money growing in our gardens – we have 6 sq. Foot boxes growing hundreds of plants, potato tower, blackberries, raspberries, grapes, strawberries, goji berries, container blueberries, container asparagus, 2 plum trees, 2 apple trees, 1 pear tree, 2 lemon trees and 1 peach tree. And our lot is only 1/4 acre and that 1/4 acre includes the space our house takes up.

So why am I telling you this? It’s because we have a lot in a small space. If we start spraying chemicals all over our yard, or even in specific spots, it will most likely drift to our food somewhere. In addition, not only do we want our gardens protected, but our kids! We have a playhouse, sandbox, swingset and trampoline that take up the other spaces in other ways to make money our yard = kids everywhere else where food is not growing. Not to mention the dangers to pets as well.

1. Vinegar – this is the main ingredient and the core and base other ways to make money of any natural weed killing recipe. What you actually add to your vinegar will determine the other ways to make money amount of increase of performance. The reason why this works is that white distilled vinegar other ways to make money that you can buy at nearly any store for household other ways to make money use contains 3-5% acetic acid. What is acetic acid? Well, it is a desiccant and this means it removes moisture. So, when you spray it on weeds and plants, the water in the leaves is drawn and the “above ground” foliage dies off. In some plants, it may reach the root, but not as often as we would hope. Also, vinegar may not really work for some weeds and plants other ways to make money that have a waxy coating or other natural barrier on other ways to make money them. However, it is still your primary and main ingredient – that’s a good thing because it is cheap too!

2. Salt – salt is another very effective component and complement to a other ways to make money natural weed killing recipe. Regular ol’ salt of any kind is based on sodium chloride (most every salt except epsom) is easy to find and cheap. Salt, like vinegar, is also a desiccant, so it too will dry out the leaves, stems and potentially get to the roots of the weed/plant. Basically by combining it with vinegar, you make the solution “extra strength.”

3. Oil – oil is the secret ingredient. Oil can be used directly or found within soaps containing other ways to make money a high concentration of oil; soap is the most popular oil form used in homemade other ways to make money weed killers. Oils break down the waxy coatings or other natural barriers other ways to make money that many weeds and plants produce to protect their leaves. By breaking this down, you give a straight shot for the vinegar and salt other ways to make money to do it’s job. In addition, oils and soaps break the tension water on surfaces, which allows for the mixture to stay on the plant other ways to make money and not “run off” like just vinegar or vinegar/salt will do, again giving more ability for the vinegar and salt to other ways to make money penetrate and kill the weeds before slipping off the surface.

As mentioned, you can use oil directly or you can use certain other ways to make money soaps as most are oil based. From my research, the best soap to use is the classic blue dawn other ways to make money dish soap – the “grease” cutting power in this dish soap is most effective. Using dish soaps that contain extra ingredients or that are other ways to make money moisturizing will not be very effective as they provide a other ways to make money coating. So it really needs to be the classic blue dawn. You can also use vegetable/canola oils and even coconut oil. If you choose the coconut oil however, you will need to heat to liquify it and use other ways to make money it immediately.

4. Citrus based essential oils (optional) – if you want to make a super formula that will other ways to make money be even more effective – add several drops of citrus based essential oil – lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit. Essential oils are the highly concentrated drops of oil from other ways to make money a particular plant or food – in this case the oil is extracted from the peel other ways to make money of these fruits. There are many beneficial therapeautic uses for citrus essential oils other ways to make money at home and for personal use – in fact you can see 17 helpful household uses for other ways to make money lemon essential oil HERE. One precaution for personal use of essential oils is that other ways to make money you should not be exposed to sunlight for 24 hours; well, that same rule is good for plants and weeds as other ways to make money this will cause the weeds to be exposed to the other ways to make money burning factor or sunlight and burn and die.
