  • 1/4 cup Dawn dish soap
  • Spray bottle

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, heat up the vinegar and add your Epsom salts so that they dissolve.

  • Vinegar works by drawing out moisture from the plant and therefore killing the weeds. Spray during the hottest part of the day, as the sun is your friend and will dry the weeds out faster.
  • Epsom salts will ensure that weeds don’t grow back, so make sure you don’t spray where you plan on planting.
  • Wait a few days after spraying, and your weeds should be gone!

Happy Planting!
