To eliminate weeds from your terrace or garden without resorting to chemical herbicides, you can prepare this quick and effective natural herbicide. Here’s what you’ll need.

Floor with weeds

Weeds are a common nuisance, often appearing in the cracks of stair tiles or driveways, giving an unkempt appearance to the surroundings. Chemical herbicides, although effective, are not the ideal choice due to their harmful and toxic composition. To address this, we present a natural herbicide solution that is safe, affordable, and efficient.

Here's how to eliminate weeds

How to Make Natural Herbicide:

We’ll guide you through making a natural herbicide using white vinegar, a non-toxic and effective weed control solution that avoids harm to humans, animals, and pets.


  • 1 L of white vinegar
  • 33 g of salt
  • Liquid dishwashing detergent
  • 1 empty spray bottle


  1. Take the spray bottle and pour the salt into it.
  2. Add the white vinegar to the bottle.
  3. Add a splash of liquid dishwashing detergent.
  4. Shake the mixture well.

Application: Spray the solution directly on the weeds, preferably in the morning on a warm day for optimal effectiveness. Be cautious not to spray on plants with flowers or those you wish to keep, as the solution may damage them. This method is particularly suitable for driveways or stair crevices where there are no desirable plants nearby.

Baking soda on weeds

Alternative Herbicide: For a milder but still natural herbicide, consider using baking soda for lawn weeds. Simply sprinkle baking soda powder on the weeds, causing them to wilt. Once wilted, remove the roots to complete the process. This alternative is recommended for areas where weeds are in proximity to other plants you wish to preserve.
