Eco-Friendly Homemade Herbicide for Weed Control

If you have a courtyard and garden, the challenge of dealing with unruly weed growth during the summer months is likely familiar. The conventional herbicides available in the market pose concerns due to their chemical composition, especially when there are children and pets around. For those who prefer an ecological alternative, or simply enjoy DIY solutions, here’s a powerful and harmless herbicide that you can prepare at home with ease.


  • 5 liters of water
  • 1 liter of vinegar
  • 1 kg of fine salt


  1. Dissolve the fine salt in the water thoroughly.
  2. Add the liter of vinegar to the saltwater solution.
  3. Mix the ingredients well to create a homogeneous mixture.

Once your herbicide is ready, transfer it into a spray bottle for convenient application. Target the areas where weeds are unwanted, and spray the solution generously. After approximately 15 days, you’ll observe the weeds drying up and being effectively eliminated.

This DIY herbicide is not only cost-effective but also ensures the safety of children and pets by avoiding the use of chemical agents found in commercial herbicides. To maintain the efficacy of the solution, it’s recommended to use the entire prepared batch each time and not leave it stored in the spray bottle for an extended period. Enjoy your lush, weed-free garden with this eco-friendly herbicide!
