The word is that vinegar is a useful herbicide. It's the potency of the acetic acid, but you do really need a concentration stronger than culinary vinegar.
You can buy proprietary vinegar herbicides (vinegar plus salt) but you pay for them in sync with the price of Round Up and other poisons.
However, Woolworths is selling a "Cleaning Vinegar" in much larger volumes and very cheaply which is stronger than food grade vinegar.
My early experiments using the stuff neat are proving hopeful...
I don't know what the acetic acid concentration is of this product but it certainly is more potent than normal vinegar.
Do you use it neat, Dave? Do you need to apply it more than once? Would you use it on soil in which you wanted to grow food?
Thank you Dave, I will look at for 'cleaning vinegar'. I've used culinary on broadleaf weeds, neat, and it has worked on most, not all.
Do you spray it on the leaves Dave, like regular herbicide? Or pour it into the growing centre?
There's lot of info about vinegar on the web and I suggest you do the homework because I'm not an expert on the stuff. But the way into the weed is through the leaves especially new growth. I have sprayed twice and find that the targeted species are dying off. I'm sure they are not as sick as they'd be after Roundup or its like -- but the impact has registered. So I was looking for any other experiences...
