Say No to Herbicides: Use this non-toxic, weed killer instead

At Storybrooke Equine Rehabilitation Center, where we house our rehab horses, we've got weeds. Lots of them. Relentless, climbing, spreading, weeds. Now, if you're anything like me, weeds are your nemisis. The absolute bane of your existence. BUT, instead of reaching for toxic, cancer causing, environmentally unsafe and unfriendly herbicides like Round-Up to battle them, try this recipe instead! It's what we use to keep the weeds at bay without poisoning ourselves or the horses.


1 gallon white vinegar

1/2 cup white table salt

Optional: Dr. Bronner's Castille soap


1. Pour vinegar into large pot on stove. Cover with lid and bring to a boil.

2. Pour salt into your garden sprayer

3. Pour hot vinegar into garden sprayer carefully

4. Sneak up on the "enemy" and spray lib

erally, being sure to saturate the soil to kill roots.

5. Re-apply as needed

Works great on poison ivy too!
