Recently, people are increasingly looking for ways to save the garden from unnecessary chemicals. In doing so, they are turning to forms of solutions that are in harmony with nature. We will offer you 3 simple ways to get rid of weeds easily, without using toxic chemicals. You’ll be amazed, but you’ll find most of the products in your kitchen. Come and give it a try! One step before you start
Plants have a natural layer that protects them from negative external influences. To rid weeds of this protective layer, you will need a mixture of water and soap. Mix together two cups of water and a few drops of spray soap and spray this mixture on the weeds. If you do this before trying any of the other techniques listed below, the results will be much more effective.
1. Let it dry
The first method offers the option of letting the weed dry out by spraying it with alcohol. Take a spray bottle and mix together two cups of water and one tablespoon of pure alcohol (96%). Spray the prepared liquid on the weeds. This will cause the plants to dry out through and through, making them easier to remove. Other ingredients from your household can do the same:
- Baking soda, which you sprinkle on the roots of plants.
- vinegar mixed with water that you spray on weeds.
- oil dripped on the leaves of plants.
- Salt mixed with water and applied to plants.
2. Burn them
Don’t imagine no flamethrower when doing this, just a kettle will do to burn the weeds! Pouring boiling water over the weeds will cause the plants to burn and the roots will simply die. Only use this method in an area without any other plants, such as a driveway or patio, as the hot water could spread and kill other plants, which would be an eternal shame.
3. Use acid
Plevel absolutely hates acid. That’s why so many chemical weed killers contain it. However, you can do without a product containing a wide range of chemicals. You can get by with just mixing two tablespoons of lemon juice and one cup of white vinegar. Spray this mixture on unwanted plants and you will see that you get the same effect as with specialty products, except that this method will not affect the much-cared-for soil in your garden.
